Plank is a designer Italian furniture company which dates back to the late 19th century. In 1893 the company was founded by Karl Plank in South Tyrol and it is a family company which has been handed down from father to son for over 100 years.
The company began life in the manual labour market but today they are a leading design company who produce products which bring together technology and design. Much of their production process is cleverly automated but the Plank team are still involved by hand in several of the processes in the production of their designer pieces.
Plank was one of the first ever Italian furniture manufacturers to receive the quality certificate DIN ISO 9001 and they bring together a wide range of different designers and design processes to ensure a collection which is beautifully designed and perfectly manufactured.
At Naken Interiors we have a range of Plank pieces in our collection and we aim to present the finest examples of their quality furniture which is perfectly in keeping with modern design trends and shows off the quality of their craftsmanship and creative flair. Their range includes tables, chairs and many other related furniture products. The most recognised and well known of their pieces including the Myto Chair and the Miura Chair, both of which are designed by one of the company’s most renowned designers – Konstantin Grcic. As well as Grcic there is an expansive and highly talented design team at Plank, including Raul Barbieri, Claudio Bellini, Björn Dahlström, Naoto Fukasawa, Cisotti Laube, Luca Trazzi, and Ludovica & Roberto Palomba.
Plank’s ethos is a combination of quality and ecology and they work to provide durable furniture which can be a fond piece in your home for many years. Their furniture is designed to be long lasting without causing any burden on the environment, or any more than necessary and they consider each of their pieces a true classic because they are designed to last for a lifetime and be treasured throughout.
Plank products have been recognised for the quality of their designs several times, receiving many awards and acknowledgments for their quality. They have won awards including the XXII Compasso d’Oro ADI Design Award for the Myto chair in addition to the IF Product Design Award – Gold selection for the Miura stool. The awards given to these products has seen them catapulted into positions of great interest, as they form parts of the permanent collections of some of the most important museums in the world including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Design Museum of London, the Art Institute of Chicago and the International Design Museum in Munich.
At Naken Interiors we have put together a good representation of the exceptional quality furniture designed and manufactured by Plank and many of the pieces we’ve selected work wonderfully together to create a cohesive look. Each piece has been designed to offer function and style in great combination as well as blending in perfectly with many different interior styles within the home.
