Concept and Partnership
bulthaup has deep roots that stretch back to 1949 and its beginnings as an independent family business. Our products have always been created from a combination of craftsmanship and design. Right from the very beginning, bulthaup has been synonymous with superb quality, authentic materials, and a passion for detail. Even in times of rapid change, bulthaup has remained a company that picks up on people’s needs and wishes, and always looks for answers and solutions.
bulthaup kitchens and living spaces are places where people come together to connect, relax and feel at home. They allow people to be creative and experience making things with their own two hands. To create such places, people, and their needs and customs, must be at the heart of all our considerations.This is how bulthaup thinks and acts. Every day, we are wondering whether our concept of “the kitchen” is enough to meet people’s wants and needs, now and in future. We continually investigate this question as we manufacture our products with a passion for detail and a love of authentic materials, to create kitchen and living space systems that enrich lives now and tomorrow.
An integrally considered systemUnderstanding people, their individual needs, and the architecture of the room, a unique kitchen architecture system emerges: A kitchen architecture designed to make life easier.
“We structure the space through a series of horizontal lines. This forms the skeleton: the system’s backbone. Horizontal lines become lines of stillness; of balance: lines of harmony.”
– b3 Kitchen Designer Herbert Schultes
Perfection comes from craftsmanship
bulthaup starts where machines leave off. People are able to create things that even the most sophisticated technology cannot: Material authenticity that can be experienced with all of the senses.
“The combination of man and machine is key. Machines are precise but the human eye is even more important. It ensures the veneer is finished to perfection”
– Veneer Expert Johann Paintmeier
Consistency is rooted in experience
For over 60 years, bulthaup has been developing products for people. Combining engineering skill with aesthetics, we create kitchen and living spaces that offer long-term functionality and design.
“We do not develop outwards from our idea, but to serve the user, the customer. And this is the transparency that lies behind all our products.”
– Head of Product Development Ulrich Spohde
Retaining the proven, inventing anew
Tradition and a past mean not just preserving values, but also constantly evolving. Evolution for the demands of the future.
“Of course, we always say we cannot reinvent the kitchen but, if we are talking about identity, about our souls: if we are talking about our values, then we are trying every single day to reinvent the kitchen and that’s part of our DNA.”
–bulthaup CEO Marc O. Eckert
