Who we are
IVANKA, founded by Katalin Ivanka and Andras Ivanka in 2002 as a Budapest based family-run start-up company, has become a leading architectural and designer concrete brand renowned for its progressive design and technological solutions with concrete.
Since its inception, IVANKA has made a name for adding a design perspective to what is otherwise widely viewed as an industrial material. They have taken concrete and elevated the material to a new level, creating products that defy normal concrete capacities and rock today’s conventional image of this material.
Multiple international successes marked important milestones in the life of the company – the successful Milan Design Week debut with SEEYOU Gravestone in 2009, embracing a 21th century taboo subject with AFTERLIFESTYLE – universally speaking spiritual design that transcends life, the AEROM Concrete Soundaudiophile loudspeakers design and high end engineering in 2010, the wearable design of CONCRETE GENEZIS in 2012 – the world’s first ready-to-wear capsule collection based on a cement-textile innovation and the The Water of Life / RAINHOUSE project with DRINK RAIN! campaign in 2014: a revolutionary system made with bio-concrete that turns rain into the highest quality drinking water, a new global perspective in sustainable development.
The company is a specialist in manufacturing facade systems, interior wall and floor coverings, furniture and bathware products, urban and outdoor elements and highly customized solutions, such as monolith exposed staircases, sculpted surface aesthetics, lightweight, light transmitting, perforated, engraved and graphical applications.
IVANKA company group has a 360-degree approach to its projects, giving complete, full circle services to its Clients.
Beside the serial production and custom manufacturing of high-quality concrete products, IVANKA provides high service in architecture, design and engineering, research and development, technological innovation, packaging, worldwide shipping, project management and installation.
IVANKA gives full support to the architect and designer community, from the first detailed studying of each project - in terms of feasibility and pricing – to the working out of the best possible solution for the physical realization of even the most challenging creations of design.
A winning combination: while raising annual production capacity to the industrial level of 150.000 m2, the company preserved its flexibility for customization as key part of the DNA of the IVANKA brand from its inception.
IVANKA’s highly skilled project management teams are responsible for the training or supervising of field operations to foster an organized unified continuum of professional work throughout the entire process. The solutions of IVANKA are long lasting and sustainable.
