Eva Solo was established over 100 years ago. Today, the company is managed and owned by Jan Engelbrecht, who represents the fourth generation of the founder’s family. Jan’s mother is called Eva, and her father, i.e. Jan’s grandfather, is one of the company’s three former CEOs. It was Eva’s name that inspired the company’s name.
Their distinctive designs have in many ways reflected the developments which have taken place in the modern home. The starting point was functional, high-quality kitchen utensils for the Scandinavian housewife – as exemplified by their bread and meat slicing machine from 1952. As women entered the labour market, Eva Solo developed tools to make life easier in the kitchen. In the 1970s, when open-plan kitchens became all the rage, they were the first company to produce kitchen equipment that was sufficiently stylish to leave out on display.
In keeping with its history, the company is today known for the functional and high-quality design of its products. Eva Solo has grown into a modern, innovative and international design company with about 60 employees.
