Poggenpohl has been operating in New Zealand since the mid 80’s, but they’ve been pioneers of the modern kitchen for much longer than that.
When the company was founded in 1892, it was under the motto, “We want to improve the kitchen”, and they’ve done just that - for 125 years. Founded on the principles of German ingenuity, Poggenpohl has become the world’s most recognised kitchen brand and cemented themselves firmly in the New Zealand market.
As Ross Longney of Poggenpohl New Zealand explains, this longevity is their point of difference. In a world where new trends spring up daily, consumers are quickly realising the benefit of choosing products with the advantage of time.
“Poggenpohl kitchens haven’t just arrived, they’ve evolved decade by decade,” explains Longney.
What you see in the Poggenpohl showroom today is the result of extensive fine-tuning and innovation. Something as uncomplicated as the thinness of their benchtops and their drawer sides, for example, showcases Poggenpohl’s commitment to simplistic, functional, undeniably German design.
