At EMKO, we’re committed to bringing into the world objects designed to enter a long-term relationship with you, their user. Simple, intelligent and fun commodities that become part of the family, that are reliable, sociable, natural, that inspire you in your work and age gracefully. Companions to your life’s story.
EMKO is a Lithuanian-based furniture design and home-accessory company. Our roots are set in the ancient Baltic tradition of craftsmanship, at the intersection of three distinct cultural spaces: the Northern Scandinavian, the Western European and the Eastern Russian. Our present is open and inviting, welcoming talented designers from all over the globe.
We design and manufacture for an active, modern, responsible market. Our customers’ base ranges from the dynamic professionals interested in inviting fresh ideas inside their life, making choices outside the box, to the creative artists who wishes their workspace to be a reflection of the passion put in their own creations.
We focus on a small diversity of award-winning furniture pieces, creating a niche for the curious solutions to be embodied. Their simple beauty generates optimism and well-being inside the place we call home or workspace. Their smart design brings comfort to everyday tasks. The quality of the craft and of the materials insures a long-term relationship, a constant satisfaction that you’ll enjoy for years to come. It takes one glance to see their beauty. It takes one touch to get their functionality.
They say a journey of a thousand miles begins with one single step.
In our case, the first step was taken in 2009, when founder Erika Markovska-Mikulskien? decided to invest time and passion into the goal of resurfacing the value of Lithuanian design tradition. Some time later, a chance encounter brought Erika face to face with young designer Inesa Malafej. Together they took the decision to start developing “My Writing Desk”, Inesa’s university graduation project. Fast forward a few years, and the MWD becomes a best seller and a success story, winning the IF concept award in 2012 and the prestigious Red Dot award in 2014.
Since then, the EMKO brand turned into one exciting and beautiful adventure. Our designs have been exhibited at countless international furniture fairs all over the world, the market interest into our products has risen exponentially and our selection of products extended to welcome new designs. EMKO products are currently being sold in Europe, Asia and USA. The journey continues.
