Date: December 6th-8th 2012
Venue: the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre
2012 marks the 120th anniversary of Poggenpohl, making it the world’s oldest kitchen brand. Riding on the precious opportunity, we are much honored to present six priceless treasures from Poggenpohl museum in the headquarters Herford to Hong Kong.
The exhibition was part of the Business of Design Week 2012 (BODW), the 10th edition of this inspiring ideas exchange platform for Asia’s industry leaders and professionals. Serving as the finale of 2012 Hong Kong Design Year, BODW has become a must-attend grand ceremony in the design world and a perfect occasion for the Poggenpohl 120th anniversary exhibition.
It is the first time these historical pieces have left Herford and been exhibited overseas. From the “Ideal Kitchen” in 1923 to the “Poggenpohl Porsche Design Kitchen P’7340” in 2007, these collections are not only the iconic designs of Poggenpohl through its 120-year history, representing our heritage and legacy, but also the most revolutionary and sophisticated kitchens at their respective times. Moreover, they are the best evidence of how Poggenpohl has been innovating and reforming kitchen industry through the century.
Lars Völkel, the Managing Director of Poggenpohl, was also invited as a key note speaker on the stream of “Brands & Design” at BODW, where he held a seminar on the topic of “Poggenpohl: 120 years of kitchen (r)evolution”.
