Our Story

Our Story

We Believe

  • Some believe the kitchen should be a serious place, for serious work. A chef’s domain, dedicated to preparing the perfect dish. Others believe it should be treated like a gallery for gazing. A shrine to taste and style meant to be seen but never touched. In the traditional world of luxury appliances, the kitchen hasn’t changed. Unfortunately, the rest of the world has.

  • We believe it’s time to remodel.

  • To upgrade not just cabinets and countertops, but expectations. To throw out the old ideas of what a kitchen should be and reimagine its place in the home and purpose in our lives. A space built for entertaining. A place that’s as fun as it is functional, as spontaneous as it is stylish. An open invitation to come together and cook up not just great dishes, but engaging conversation, spontaneous laughter and new stories.

  • We believe that with the right tools, the kitchen can become a stage. A place where appliances are more than just utilitarian props that cook, cool and clean. They are beautiful, intelligent co-stars designed to entice participation, invite experimentation and feed your creativity. And it’s these beliefs that guide everything we do.

  • Because we believe that the last thing the world needs is another luxury appliance.

  • That’s why we refuse to make them.
