About the company:

Since 2007, BORA Lüftungstechnik GmbH, based in Raubling, Upper Bavaria, has successfully developed and sold cooktop extractor systems that draw vapours downwards thanks to the use of patented technology. The innovative product ranges BORA Professional, BORA Classic, BORA X Pure, BORA Pure, BORA S Pure and BORA Basic are sold in 60 countries around the world.

The vision of BORA is “The End of Normal”; the mission – to revolutionise the kitchen as a living space with extraordinary products for extraordinary experiences. What makes the patent so special? These high-quality systems are more effective than conventional extractor hoods, extremely quiet, energysaving and easy to clean. They allow maximum design freedom in the kitchen and a clear view.

Focusing on the kitchen as a central living space, BORA brought a new dimension of innovative kitchen appliances onto the market in 2021 with the BORA X BO steam oven and the matching BORA multi-drawer.

Back in 2009, the company received its first award within the scope of the innovation contest 365 Orte im Land der Ideen (365 Places in the Land of Ideas), followed by the Deutsche Gründerpreis (German Entrepreneurs’ Award), Red Dot Awards, Plus X Awards, German Design Awards, Iconic Award, German Brand Award, Good Design Awards, iF Design Awards, among others.
