In line with the trend towards naturally designed interiors, Agrob Buchtal succeeded in transferring the familiar, natural look of slate to ceramic tiles. The new Timeless collection does not simply imitate this source of inspiration, but interprets the theme independently by its own distinctive look which - in keeping with the name of the series - is timeless in the best sense of the word. The focus in this connection is on the fusion of graphics and relief or differentiated subtleties and details which have been precisely worked out with modern technology. The novelty will be launched on the market at the beginning of 2020 and will be available nationwide in the first quarter.
Stories is a new ceramic tile series of the brand Agrob Buchtal, which invites new creativity on walls and floors with its variability. The name is not just a matter of chance: depending on which components are chosen and how they are combined, the room tells different stories about the individual design preferences of the residents. A wide range of formats, two decor variants, contemporary, long-lasting colours, haptic structures and attractive accentuating elements are available. No matter how Stories is composed and arranged, the new collection spreads urban flair in both private and public areas. The novelty will be launched on the market at the beginning of 2020 and will be available nationwide in the first quarter.

The new collection including a glossy glazed and a matt unglazed version will be launched on the market at the beginning of 2020 and will be available throughout the country in the first quarter.

The "Jagdhof Glashütte", one of the most beautiful country hotels in Germany, is situated in the middle of the most densely wooded area of Germany, the idyllic Rothaar Mountains. As the icing on the cake, a new Deep-Forest-Spa area was to complement the five-star, nature-inspired feel-good concept. The interior design office Bachhuber Geissinger, in cooperation with the architectural ceramics specialist Agrob Buchtal, accepted the challenge of the conversion. They renovated the outdated swimming pool and sauna area and used selected materials to create a relaxation area which interprets the "Jagdhof" theme in a modern way and at the same time integrates the tried and tested.
