The combination of three brands in three different segments is unique in the market. Thereby, the brands can not only be used separately, but can also be excellently combined. This flexibility is valuable, not only for consumers, but also in projects where the brands are successfully integrated.

Frank Bogaers

In 1977, Wil Bogaers - the father of the current director/owner - took the helm and founded Borek after his adventures as a helmsman on the high seas. Borek entered the Benelux market as a pioneer, with high-quality wood stick parasols and free-hanging floating parasols. In 1988, Frank Bogaers joined the Borek team. Together with a passionate and dedicated team, a wonderful brand has been created.

We moved to the upper end of the market in the 1990s, focusing on quality family businesses in Belgium and entering the hospitality market with deliveries to luxury hotels and restaurants.

In 1999, we opened Bogarden, our pilot store, to receive more direct feedback from consumers. Our second brand, Max & Luuk, saw the light in 2013, named after Frank Bogaers' sons, and positioned itself under the Borek banner, retaining its own identity over the years.

In 2019, we introduced our third brand, Yoi, which means 'good' in Japanese. Yoi offers European models with Japanese influences and is in the upper mid-range segment. We aim for exclusivity and sustainability, with currently 20 carefully selected dealers in the Benelux.

It is essential to us that our target groups get the attention, service and quality they deserve, and that they can get the best possible inspiration in attractive showrooms with clear explanations.

Sponsoring & Events

We proudly support events that celebrate the passion for sport, lifestyle and the outdoors. In doing so, we go beyond setting up lodges and stands; we strive to create and share valuable networks with our partners and participants. Our sponsorship is not just about visibility; we share our values and strengthen relationships within the networks in which we operate. Whether providing comfortable seating during sporting events or creating a sophisticated outdoor experience during design fairs, Borek remains committed to enriching our environment with stylish and functional outdoor furniture.
