We manufacture handbuilt kitchens in solid wood. To make it as
easy and efficient as possible for you to plan your kitchen, the cabinets are manufactured in
standard dimensions. This is how we think we can carry on the fine Swedish tradition of quality
kitchen construction. A cabinet system constructed in standard dimensions is both balanced in
shape and proportion. This increases the possibility of simple, beautiful and timeless kitchen
Our kitchens are built from scratch in our carpentry shop in
Skåne. For us, it is important that our kitchens are manufactured in Sweden and to use only
natural materials. Therefore, all our kitchens have solid pine frames, shelves and drawers. A
kitchen interior with solid wood frames lasts for several generations and makes it an
environmentally friendly and sustainable solution. Our kitchen series Original, Modern and Modul
rest in the kitchen design language that started with the entry of functionalism into Swedish
architecture. A light and stripped-down expression that still characterizes today's design and
I am happy to take on the role as Funkiskök's new CEO. The
timing feels right to work with quality kitchens and long-term sustainability. Funkiskök's sense
of design is also very inspiring and contributes to a wonderful work environment.
I come directly from the appliances industry and have taken with me insights regading the
different needs from the customer's perspective and how important it is to have functioning
processes in an organization. My own great interest in cooking and all the hours I spend in my
own kitchen can hopefully also contribute valuable perspective.
Before the pandemic, I worked as a commercial pilot flying passengers around Europe. I hope to
bring my experience of structure, collaboration and leadership into a new industry and to
develop the company into a new future with new eyes. I'm looking forward to this trip and
meeting many wonderful people along the way!
NEW RESELLER IN GOTHENBURG
The sisters Kinna and Catha who run Konkret Studio will be our new dealers in Gothenburg.
It feels good to represent a kitchen company that manufactures
its kitchens in solid wood in a small carpentry shop in Sweden. With Funkiskök's modular cabinet
system you have a combination of tradition and good form and craftsmanship with a modern take.
With good quality, Funkiskök faces the future in a sustainable way.
We are both trained as interior designers. As architects, we help both companies and private
individuals, and we are used to planning both small and large projects. As we have extensive
experience in the profession and have worked together for many years, we feel secure in our new
role as reseller.
It will be great fun to meet customers and show Funkiskök's products in our new showroom at
Gibraltargatan 54 in Gothenburg.
Modul is a kitchen interior suitable for both modern and traditional architecture. A
light and stripped-down expression where doors and drawers come to life with the frame.
Whave developed a system of cabinets in
standard dimensions that can complement your existing, as well as new, kitchen environment. The
cabinets are not a stock item, rather they are built to order by hand in solid pine. In order for
production to be as efficient as possible, the cabinets are manufactured according to specific
dimensions. All our cabinets can be found here on our website.
In a kitchen order, it is easy for us to produce suitable fillers and plinths for
your interior. With the help of these, cabinets will fit nicely with your existing architecture.
All our kitchens are available in any NCS colour. Read more about colour choices and
what to consider.
WHY A KITCHEN IN SOLID WOOD?
Solid wood is a wonderful natural material. It is not filled
with additives or dangerous adhesives and binders. It ages beautifully, and damage and wear and
tear that occurs over the years is easy to repair, restore, or live with. A kitchen interior in
solid wood lasts for several generations and makes it both an environmentally friendly and
sustainable solution. Opening a cabinet or drawer in solid wood invokes a special feeling–it
smells good and is beautiful to look at. Our kitchens do not contain any strange by-products.
When choosing a solid wood kitchen interior, you need to be
aware that wood is a living material. It is affected by external conditions such as moisture and
dryness. It is therefore important to try to keep a uniform level of humidity in the room. If
the house is newly built or major renovation work has been carried out, humidity levels must be
reasonably restored before the kitchen is installed. Solid wood moves with the seasons. If you
are looking for perfection and small tolerances, you need to think twice about whether a solid
wood kitchen is for you.
During the pandemic we experienced disruption to kitchen
production due to supply chain issues. This meant that the pipeline we would normally work with
quickly changed. The availability of materials deteriorated drastically as prices quickly
skyrocketed. Although many of our materials are Swedish, the market is interconnected with the
rest of the world. If Swedish companies can get more for their material abroad it results in
rapid and uncontrollable consequences for our domestic market. The price of pine for example,
increased by over 100%. It has been a very long time since the world faced such severe and rapid
During the spring, many of us had hoped for a calmer, more stabilizing situation. Instead, we are
in another very critical stage with very uncertain forecasts.
Kitchen renovations and planning of major construction
projects usually require long-term planning and credible price pictures to work with. Right now,
this is difficult.
We at Funkiskök do everything we can to deliver your orders at the price we offered. However,
current world market instability may affect your order. We are doing everything we can to inform
our customers as quickly as possible of any changes to their order.
