Jorge Pensi - Portrait

Meet the Designer

Architect and designer Jorge Pensi worked with Poggenpohl to create +MODO, a range characterised by its use of space within the worktops and cabinets. Discover his design philosophy.

Jorge Pensi explains the thinking behind +MODO: “Poggenpohl asked me to create a new language in kitchen design, combining their expertise with my experience in design. We all enjoyed developing the program, in a warm human atmosphere. “

“The kitchen is a very important part of the house. It´s the place in which the family meet, talk, and communicate. Maybe there we take the most important decisions in our life.”

“+MODO is a landscape of horizontal lines, opened and sometimes closed, full of light, with the combination of cold and warm materials. It’s simple but at the same time has a clear identity, born to satisfy all the consumer´s desires, to please the architects. It´s the design of an architect who specifies what he really loves.”

“Someone said that +MODO is an extreme exercise of poetry and realism… My aim was to enter in the kitchen design world with a good design, developed by a first class company. And we really got it.”
