The Marko company was founded in 1995 when it started production of custom-made kitchen furniture. For over 10 years, we have also been creating complete furniture for luxury yachts of the Danish X-Yachts company. This cooperation required top-level craftsmanship and quality products. The experience and skills gained there are now used in the production and sales of kitchen furniture. We have modern machinery (including CNC machines and our paint shop) and up to date technology at our disposal, thanks to which we produce very diverse, unique kitchen furniture within short deadlines. We are a reliable business partner. We combine the experience and competence necessary to implement large, demanding projects requiring flexibility and speed in decision-making which is characteristic of a medium-sized company. Recently we have started cooperation with external designers. For us, this is a new development path and a method to expand our offer. The kitchen is more than just a functional room for cooking. It is often the most important room in the house, where all the household members feel “at home”. With our furniture, you can arrange this unique place.
Marko Kitchens is the only manufacturer of high-quality kitchen furniture, drawing on its experience in creating ergonomic solutions for small interiors of luxury yachts. It has translated into the highest possible level of craftsmanship combined with uncompromising aesthetics and compact functionality.
Since the beginnings of our company, we have been guided by values that reflect our background in craft. We draw on this experience to design kitchen fronts, using what we master perfectly well: creating solutions that work in the most demanding of environments.
Compact functionality, ergonomic combinations of many functions, optimal use of small spaces, use of noble materials resistant to adverse weather, and other elements, all combine to design harmoniously different materials and surfaces, with a hand-crafted finish, edge curves just as in yacht boats, and shaped wooden elements.
All this has been working perfectly well in the production of yacht furniture for years, and is now being used in creating new collections of kitchen fronts.
The main values that set the direction for our projects mostly include:
Local, because we are proud of our tradition and the place we come from.
Marko Kitchen is:
Functionality, because the kitchen is a place where everything must be at hand.
Functionality in our furniture:
– ease of use,
– maximum use of space,
– no place for random solutions.
Invention, because we are looking for new solutions based on the analysis of trends and user needs.
We are not afraid of experimenting. With all this, we can propose proprietary solutions and technologies that no one else in the industry uses.
Craftsmanship, because hand-crafted details are the greatest value.
Craftsmanship in our furniture:
– we use noble and natural materials,
– handicraft; human hands, not machines, are working for us
– uniqueness – no mass production,
– attention to detail,
– attention to every customer.
Adventure, because life is all about emotions; emotions that the customer experiences when using our products.
