Poggenpohl opens a new store in the UK

A jewel in the south-east of England, Tunbridge Wells is a highly desirable residential location, and therefore an obvious location for Poggenpohl to open a brand-new studio. Within the historic area of The Pantiles, this small but perfectly designed studio hints at what is achievable by showcasing examples of each of their product ranges, whilst remaining respectful to architecture and heritage of the building.

From the outside, the historical building is a subtle dark green facade and located on “The Pantiles”, a bustling shopping street. Behind the freshly renovated facade, customers can expect a modern contrasting range: In front of hand-painted windows, the award-winning +VENOVO is the focus of the new studio, with its elegant, functional and minimalist design. This innovative kitchen newcomer has been designed deliberately as a solitaire, to stand alone in rooms and be attractive from all sides.

Studio manager, Kim Freeman, who lives in Royal Tunbridge Wells, is looking forward to establishing Poggenpohl in the neighbourhood. “The unique brand identity of Poggenpohl complements the special atmosphere of “The Pantiles” perfectly and makes our community even more appealing,” says Kim Freeman.

Since this latest Poggenpohl store opened in December 2018, increasing numbers of curious passers-by have entered the extraordinary kitchen studio, being spontaneously inspired and delighted by the unique kitchens on display. Simon Richmond, Poggenpohl UK Managing Director comments, “We are extremely excited to bring our new retail concept to the UK market and especially in Tunbridge Wells. This is also a new location for the brand and forms part of our future development and strategic growth plans for one of the most important markets for Poggenpohl.”
