Formats, colours, surfaces: AREA PRO - The new design standard for ceramic contract floors (with designer Sebastian Herkner)


Just the right thing for everything. AREA PRO is the new collection for every area of use. Timeless in design, unprecedentedly comprehensive and well thought-out. The series is available in 15 formats, 12 colours and 7 different slip-resistance classes. This means it can be used in practically every conceivable area of application: for example, in residential or commercial buildings, schools, hospitals in the hotel or catering industry.  The “Grid" surface was even developed by designer Sebastian Herkner for commercial kitchens, which require a slip resistance in the R12V4 category.


When developing the new collection, it was important to us that one material can be laid consistently in all functional areas of a building with different slip resistance requirements.

Ceramic façades: Designing a living interface between building and environment (with designer Markus Bischof)


Ceramic façade systems offer numerous functional and aesthetic advantages. One of the most important is the possibility of creating lively plays of light and shade. We are presenting the two new surfaces Canyon and Kaijo for ventilated façades for the first time at Bau Online: They were created in close cooperation with the product designer Markus Bischof and are deliberately designed in contrasting ways in order to offer an architecturally appealing range.

For so-called ETICS façades, Anna Samoris, Product Manager at Agrob Buchtal, is presenting smart additions to the range for the already successful Craft collection. For example, Sauerbruch Hutton in Berlin chose Craft for the FritzTower. Vera Hartmann, project manager at Sauerbruch Hutton, presents her project in our stream.


The new three-dimensional Canyon façade is conceivable in glazed or unglazed surfaces and numerous colour schemes.

The floor revolution! Lay tiles without glue with DryTile.


Time is one of the most valuable resources. A ceramic tile is one of the most sustainable floor coverings. Whether in shopfitting, gastronomy, hotels or shopping centres - saving time during renovation or new construction is now possible with the DryTile cork-coated tile.


How exactly does the installation process change? How is it that the installation time is reduced many times over? Find out the answers to all these questions in the DryTile stream.


Benjamin Hafner, DryTile expert, in an interview with Sophia Dreyer explains what is revolutionary about the product.
