In 1922, the little town of Salurn situated in the mountains of South Tyrol was in need of a wheelwright. That marked the beginning of the history of Josef Kosta and his family in the field of woodworking.

In 1962, forty years after his father had settled in Salurn, Oskar Kosta founded the family run company Joko and began with the production of butchers blocks for professional use. High quality wood and precise processing helped the company establish itself in the european and international markets as a reliable manufacturer and supplier.

Since 2003, the company has been in its third generation, and we, Josi and Franz Kosta, are now making use of the know-how of Joko professional for the Jokodomus in- and outdoor kitchen modules. Functional kitchen carts and cooking stations.

The passion for a clear design language in combination with the latest kitchen technology is our motivating force.

The Greenhouse Just Got Smarter


An intelligent twist in a trend of urban microclimate gardens, the SmartGreenHouse helps users exercise their green thumb with almost any type of plant, herb, flower, fruit or veggie. This is made possible by a highly customizable climate control system that can be fine tuned in regards to temperature, light, and water as well as air and soil humidity. A synced smartphone app also guides users in not only the initial parameters for the green of their choice, but also long term maintenance.

Fresh, light and whimsical: this indoor-outdoor kitchen is an absolute smash

Designer: Karl Noonan for Karl Noonan Designs


The client wanted a peaceful haven with a spiritual dimension in her beloved late 19th century terrace in Redfern, Sydney. She wanted to return home each day and feel like she was on holiday. Although on the edge of the city, this home’s private garden might as well be in the bush as it’s so quiet. Connecting the kitchen to the garden was very important in the design, as was expressing the owner’s unique personality in a workable, multidimensional room. Positioning food preparation on the edge of the kitchen and towards the garden required special consideration. And as lighting was a very important feature in the design, the materials used had to have a luminous nature.


Samsung Staron® Solid Surfaces were selected for the benchtops as they are highly durable and possess beautiful, smooth lines. By using light to illuminate the Staron® surfaces, a luminescence was created to backlight the food preparation areas. Additional lights were added around the sink. Energy efficiency was also an important consideration, so more specific task lighting was created using low-maintenance LEDs, and the use of traditional overhead lighting was minimised. The overall result of this design is an inviting space that blurs the boundaries of outdoor and indoor living, and a kitchen that transforms from a bright vibrant space during the day to an illuminated magical area at night. It also won Best Small Kitchen in NSW at the KBDi Designers Awards.” Designer: Karl Noonan for Karl Noonan Designs
