HISTORY

The story of the kitchen is also the story of our company. From the kitchen buffet to the "reform kitchen" style, from modular design to the first built-in kitchen, to the new design concepts that accommodate desire for openness, spaciousness and individuality. Since our company was founded in 1929, we have built first-class kitchen furniture - and nothing else. We remain true to ourselves and thus true to others as well.
