Lukas Plum founded o.k.-Versand in 1997 (Versand means mailorder); first selling via printed catalogue, the o.k. shop has been online since 1998. In 1998 the first real store opened in Cologne, in 2001 the Berlin store followed.
The o.k. concept: those who love strolling through department stores abroad and browsing through the local variety of goods, will appreciate the concept of o.k.-Versand (mail order): here, objects of everyday life are presented which might not compete with common German product quality standards, but which fascinate by means of design and creativity. Whether handcrafted or industrially mass produced, all items are originally produced for their local markets. None of the producers himself intended to export these goods to the West. Our selection is mainly motivated by aesthetic aspects: we look out for articles which
are exceptional in shape and colour but can equally be applied in our households and are hardly available on the European market.
Although o.k. imported since the beginning from several countries like Bulgaria, Russia, South Africa, Thailand, Yemen etc. we always did only little wholesale. But after Lukas Plum’s last trips to Iran and India he decided now to increase the own imports and establish an own wholesale-department named o.k.-International.
The main items are: simple furniture made out of mango-wood, stainless steel furniture and kitchen items, plastic carpets, tea glasses and wired glass holders, recycled bags etc.
