A cut above with Gaggenau’s four principles of design

A brand underpinned by a legacy three centuries in the making, Gaggenau was born in the Black Forest in Germany in 1683 as an ironworks outfit – and even then it was a ground-breaking enterprise.

Constantly striving to forge new solutions to current design and perennial challenges, Gaggenau proved itself a forerunner of innovation in kitchen design and technology. Always mindful of blending aesthetics with functionality, the selection of materials is of paramount importance in the manufacturing of its appliance range, which encompasses all aspects of cooking and catering, from ovens to dishwashers and refrigerators.

Stainless steel, brass, aluminium, cast iron, enamel (its speciality) and glass are used for their durability as well as their ability to deliver on the design language of Gaggenau – four principles that every product embodies: authentic, sculptural, present and generous. As a pioneer in its field, and cognisant of the fact that kitchens are increasingly becoming the centre of the home socially and spacially, the design team considers the effect of an appliance and how it relates to the room, and views its products as objects of beauty designed to enhance the space visually and complement the existing architecture of a kitchen.
