ADF 2019. Poggenpohl ATL presents +Venovo
Poggenpohl rethinking kitchens, part of 2019 Atlanta Design Festival. A profile of the design team at Neongrün, Hamburg.
Designers Sören Jungclaus and Mathias Knigge are the creators of +VENOVO: an aesthetically scaled-back piece of furniture which offers added value by enhancing open living spaces. Unexpected. Surprising. And yet as if it has always been there. A kitchen which fits into any life and yet stands out due to its uniqueness. Wood, metal, ceramics, hot, cold, smooth, suspended. Hard to put into words, but intuitively understandable, tangible, palpable. A kitchen which can do a lot and will do a lot with you.

+VENOVO, a kitchen newcomer, is a response to overarching contemporary trends such as urbanisation and mobility. It stands, as if floating on its sleek twin frames, for freedom and flexibility.
It seamlessly blends into open living space. “It has to look attractive from every angle,” says Sören Jungclaus, referring to +VENOVO’s aesthetic efficiency in organising a variety of tools and functions, from hob to refrigerator. “People seek out visual calm, and we seek out minimalism,” Jungclaus continues. His collaboration with Mathias Knigge in developing +VENOVO was all about reinventing the kitchen.
“It was important to us that we always had the piece in mind for living space, and therefore as a piece of furniture,” explains Knigge.
An engineering graduate and designer, Knigge has been advising companies on the design and development of products which are characterised by a special proximity to the user since 2004.
