The ‘Dan’ in ‘Dan Kitchens’ is often assumed to be a person’s name. It actually refers to the company’s Danish heritage and its early years when importing ready to assemble cabinetry from Denmark.
Although more cost effective, the limited range of colours, the modular sized imported cabinets on offer and the tyrannies of distance made the decision to manufacture locally a logical one. Danish design culture firmly in mind and unconstrained by mass production limitations, Australia now enjoys world’s best bespoke joinery, manufactured in Sydney to suit local conditions.
Culturally diverse but united in a relaxed and spacious lifestyle, Australians have embraced the best ideas and technological developments and used them in new and uniquely local ways.
