Founded in 1892 in the heart of Germany, Poggenpohl is the oldest and best-known kitchen brand in the world- present in more than 70 countries around the globe.
Since then, we have followed in the footsteps of our great founder, Friedemir Poggenpohl, with his vision to ‘improve the kitchen’.
For 120 years, Poggenpohl has been reinventing life in the kitchen one idea at a time. Poggenpohl was the first to introduce many transformative innovations including white lacquer furniture, the first wooden kitchen, and the first island kitchen.
Poggenpohl custom manufactures its products in a way that combines traditional craftsmanship with the precision of modern technology. Innovative state of the art methods are combined with the comprehensive skills of our experienced master craftsmen. We are proud of our furniture, built to the highest possible standard and hand finished by our craftsmen to add the polish of perfection.
In the early 1930’s, Poggenpohl introduced the ten-layer polished lacquer technique. This revolutionary technique gave us the super smooth, seamless and robust finish that we see today. Thanks to 120 years of experience, our lacquers add exceptional surface resistance and an immaculate shine to our hand-crafted surfaces.
Building a Poggenpohl kitchen is special and it requires the expertise of skilled craftsman to achieve the level of perfection required. Many of our craftsmen have been with Poggenpohl for decades, often starting out as apprentices within the factory to learn the unique trade of making a Poggenpohl kitchen. Their expertise is continually developing and evolving, and it is this special know how that turns the ordinary into the extraordinary.
Each kitchen begins with a blank sheet of paper. We start from scratch to build up our kitchens so that no detail goes unnoticed. Poggenpohl’s expert kitchen designers work in close collaboration with their clients to create inspiring designs that meet the unique desires of each client. Poggenpohl designers create unique and inspiring made to measure kitchens to create the perfect solution
for every space.
Our drawer boxes are renowned for their weight and strength, which gives them the ability to withstand a lifetime of heavy strains. Poggenpohl uses unique hidden runners under the drawers to give smoother movement for these special drawers designed to last a lifetime.
Our drawers are not just strong – they are designed to optimize the interior space. The drawer runners are innovatively placed under the drawer instead of beside the drawer, maximizing the available interior space for our clients. Poggenpohl offers a wide range of high quality interior storage solutions to provide endless flexibility.
The utmost care and attention is given to every Poggenpohl kitchen. Each element is manufactured individually to meet the high standards required. We meticulously inspect each element, meeting German quality and safety standards, before applying the finishing touches by hand at our factory in Herford, Germany. The result is products that exceed the standards required of kitchen furniture.
The purchase of a Poggenpohl kitchen is the beginning of a lifetime relationship. That is why every Poggenpohl client receives a personalized service card with their new kitchen. Poggenpohl carefully stores all information about each kitchen to ensure that the highest level of service can be provided throughout the long lifetime of the Poggenpohl kitchen.
What makes a Poggenpohl kitchen truly remarkable is our attention to detail.
It is the unique marriage between innovative state of the art production methods combined with the experience and passion of our master craftsmen that turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. This is how we create kitchens that are built to last a lifetime.
