Custom-made, hand-made, one-of-a-kind
For more than 75 years the Austrian design company, known for its luxurious interior design solutions, has been manufacturing kitchens and furniture characterized by a perfect fusion of traditional craftsmanship, innovative manufacturing techniques, and cosmopolitan designs. The refined solutions stand out: unique pieces, generous and clear-cut shapes, the sophisticated details.

Kitchen as a sculpture in the room
Innovative kitchens are the trademark of steininger.designers. Their latest innovation is a kitchen made of 8 mm concrete. The precise and refined manufacturing of concrete requires a special know-how. Steininger.designers have come up with an unusual procedure in order to produce the ultra-thin “concrete skin”. But, the precise form work and the grinding and polishing of the surfaces are carefully done by hand.

The stone kitchen is equally unique. The cubic kitchen structures beat the traditional kitchen looks and the elements can be arranged individually, in numerous ways.

The kitchen is made of anodized aluminum and together with the integrated wine and cheese shelf it becomes the perfect kitchen for ambitious hobby chefs and wine connoisseurs. The kitchen island seems massive, but all it takes is a gentle push that moves the gas stove and reveals the condiments and silver wear. As usual, all the functional elements of a perfectly equipped Steininger kitchen are carefully hidden behind elegant facades.

Luxurious designs and exclusive interior solutions
Not only are most of the exclusive, one-of-a-kind kitchens custom-made, but steininger.designers also take care of the planning, the implementation, and the production of the whole interior. Steininger.designers’ concepts and ideas of living are expressed by their generous and luxurious – definitely exclusive – room design solutions that also stand for excitement, feeling, and the love of the world as such. All living concepts have one thing in common: They courageously represent the customers’ personality.

International design awards
The team of steininger.designers works hard to realize their ideas. Their efforts have been rewarded with two renowned, international design awards: The NICEbedtable 2008 was awarded the “if award”, whereas in 2009 the dining table NICEtable was given the “red dot design award”. The table top is jointless but can make an impression with its compact pull-out mechanism that is hidden below.

Mastermind and owner of the company Martin Steininger works closely together with a team of designers. Together they design and produce custom-made interior for their clients. The furniture trade fair 2010 in Milan was the springboard for their export activities. And soon the unique kitchens will be available in Germany, Switzerland, Lichtenstein, and England.

Modulküche HOG


Kitchen Revolution
Steininger.designers’ state-of-the-art objects combine the latest production technology and innovative materials with classic design. What you see is astonishing: details so refined that one cannot help wonder who came up with those sophisticated design solutions. The answer: Martin Steininger and his team. The company, which is located in the north of Austria in the charming Mühlviertel, has come up over the years with remarkable interior design solutions for one-of-a-kind kitchens. This year the creative team will once again present one their latest invention at one of the most important events in the kitchen design industry, the Eurocucina in Milan, Italy. The kitchen: modular kitchen HOG.A Kitchen Puzzle for the Advanced
Steininger.designers’ kitchens tend to be complete artworks, Gesamtkunstwerke so to speak, custom-made according to the individual customers’ needs. The unique kitchens have been fashioned from stone, aluminum, and concrete – the latest of which was given the red dot award in 2012.The modular kitchen, however, is based on a new concept: It consists of 4 individual elements, which allow the customers to create their very own unique “Steininger kitchen“. Elements are available in stone, concrete and ceramic. The 4 kitchen modules together with a table panel facilitate an easy workflow: storage, washing up, food preparation and last but not least the whole beautiful cooking process. The 3 striking materials provide ample scope for individual customers to put the “kitchen puzzle” together.

“A Heart of Gold” – The Love for Detail as a Trademark
Functional yet surprising details, such as a drawer below the cooking top, which conveniently stores spices, knives, and fresh herbal patches in lit-up stainless steel receptacles, have always been part of “Steininger kitchens”. The new modular kitchen HOG., however, has a very special interior: it is fashioned from anodized golden aluminum, which coats the drawers and makes them look like a luxurious jewelery box. The anodized aluminum coating presents a beautiful contrast to the natural material of the exterior. The interior lights enhance the contrast. On top of it, customers can design the interior life of their drawers according to their needs with magnetic dividers.

The Formular for Success from Austria
Aside from their already well-known kitchen models, steininger.designers exhibited 8 different modules of the modular kitchen HOG at the Eurocucina April 2012. Visitors can explore the ample possibilities the new revolutionary kitchen has to offer. steininger.designers have continuously expanded their product portfolio and the optimum kitchens offer the best of what anybody can invest in as far as kitchens and cooking is concerned. The modular kitchen HOG. enables a wider range of customers to enjoy a Steininger kitchen and the one-of-a-kind quality and exceptional design the kitchens stand for.

All pioneering furniture design achievements emerged in steininger.designers’ family-run operation. The modular kitchen HOG proofs once again that the inquiring minds, know-how and manufacturing of a family enterprise can lead to remarkable international success.



The kitchen is made of ultra-thin 8 mm concrete, which is sturdy yet very light.
Its heat resistance and food safety make it perfectly suitable for kitchens, even though it was believed to be extremely difficult to manufacture. A procedure was developed that allowed for the concrete to be made so thin that it was light enough without being brittle, and for the lively surface to still contain its fine fissures as well as its bubbles.
Both, the kitchen’s special exterior as well as its high-quality inner life, made of stainless steel and finest wood, live up to their promise. The sitting area made of solid wood and two herbal patches are as much functional elements as they emphasize the particular feel of concrete. All kitchen concepts of steininger.designers have something in common: they are visually compact and efficiently reduced to their essential elements.

Costa Rica Lookout

A young family purchased a plot overlooking Santa Teresa Beach, Costa Rica with two breath-taking views: towards the ocean and into the jungle. Benjamin Garcia Architects decided to rest the house against the back of the steep hill of the site in order to stabilize the soil and protect the house from falling debris.

The house then transitions from a more solid and intimate construction at the back that holds bedrooms and bathrooms, towards a light-weight and ephemeral structure that points towards the ocean and jungle views.

The result is a series of interwoven terraces that relate to each other in all dimensions creating not only an internal dynamic interaction between levels but also relationships between the inhabitants and the natural landscape. In these interstitial terrace spaces, which are never truly inside or out, architecture comes to foster a relationship, enjoyment, and appreciation of the natural world by the inhabitants.
