Norbert Wangen (1962-) is a German designer and inventor famous above all in the field of cooking. His monolithic kitchens with sliding tops from the K series, extremely elegant and ingenious creations, have greatly influenced new trends in the kitchen market. An architect by training, he designed his first successful product in 1995: the Attila armchair, exhibited all over the world and today part of the collection of the Vitra Design Museum. In the same years he began to conceive his first kitchens, initially conceived in the context of specific interior projects and then becoming a real brand presented in 2000 at the Cologne, Milan and Chicago fairs. In 2003 the Norbert Wangen brand was acquired by Boffi: the fruitful creative relationship with the Italian brand continued for several years, allowing Wangen to give life to new kitchens that explored in depth the fundamental intuitions of his K series, but also to try his hand at bathroom furniture sector.
