rational – German quality encounters Italian soul

Back in 1963 in tranquil Melle hardly anyone would have imagined that the name rational would someday become synonymous with luxury kitchens made in Germany. Our mission to present our customers with ultra-modern, functional kitchen solutions, but in the process not losing sight of our founding DNA, have made us what we are today. That’s why our kitchens with their outstanding quality, recognisable stand-out design as well as value-for-money reputation are so highly rated by our customers right across the globe.

In 1993 rational became a member of the Italian Snaidero Group, enjoying the best of two worlds ever since. This mix of cultures defines our creativity and enthusiasm. Whilst German engineering is renowned for its precision and refinement, our Italian side with its use of form and flare lends our products soul.

Even so, we are not resting on our laurels. Not for us “la dolce vita“, instead a continuous striving for perfection and innovation. In collaboration with the US star designer Karim Rashid we have, for instance, developed floo. The prize-winning kitchen concept combining the beautiful and the practical, and in the process opening up a window to the kitchen of the future. Hence, fifty five years of rational kitchens are simply the beginning!
