Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Hygena is a brand of fitted kitchen, originally from the United Kingdom. Started in Liverpool in 1925 to make Hoosier cabinets, it was bought by new investors in 1938, who after the war built modular kitchens for the new British post-war temporary prefab houses. With the introduction of design concepts based on the Frankfurt kitchen and new materials such as formica, Hygena became the dominant brand in kitchens from the 1960s through the 1970s. But mass manufacture and a change in styles meant that it ended up as an economy brand in the UK, bought out in the 1980s by MFI Group. As its parent faced financial difficulties in 2000s, they sold the European rights to Nobia, who on MFI's bankruptcy bought the global brand rights. Nobia continue to successfully sell the brand in France today. The brand has now been relaunched in the uk through Homebase and Argos stores
