A classic rediscovered
Timeless from Agrob Buchtal: Subtle ceramic interpretation of slate

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.


Decorative accents, attractive geometries and haptic structures
Stories by Agrob Buchtal: urban character with style

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.

Relaxing in and with nature
Deep-Forest-Spa of 5-star Relais & Châteaux Hotel Jagdhof Glashütte

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 They renovated the outdated swimming pool and sauna area and used selected materials to create a relaxation area which interprets the "Jagdhof" theme in a modern way and at the same time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.


Macrina Bakery & Cafe, Seattle
Innovative DryTile system also in demand in the USA

Seattle is located in the American state of Washington and is the biggest city in the northwest of the USA. The metropolis has a very high quality of life and is characterized by water, mountains and hills. It has several nicknames such as e.g. Emerald City in allusion to the plenty of green or Jet City as an indication of the nearby Boeing aircraft works.

In the second half of 2018, within a few days a branch of the renowned Macrina bakery chain in the Capitol Hill district was renovated “from the bottom up” in the true sense of the word. The crowning final step of the extensive modernization was a new floor covering in the form of ceramic tiles from Agrob Buchtal's DryTile system. The project was accompanied by DryTile North America LLC, which was founded at the end of 2017.

Luxury boutique hotel Ottilia, Copenhagen:
Industrial style at the highest level

Essential aspects of a boutique hotel are excellent service as well as individuality, charm and character - all attributes that the Hotel Ottilia in Copenhagen has in common. The building originally was part of the Carlsberg Brewery, which brewed world-famous beer in the district of the same name from 1847 to 2008. After extensive renovations, the 4-star-plus-house Ottilia, which belongs to Denmark's leading boutique hotel chain Brøchner, was opened in spring 2019 in the listed building ensemble. The architecture by Arkitema Architects and the interior design by Brøchner's design team have an industrial look to match the historic location: It is unspoilt, unadorned and rough, but at the same time with typical Scandinavian elegance, casualness and a sense of style. As a reminiscence of the old ceramic façade of the building base, almost all bathrooms were fitted with striking ceramic wall and floor tiles from Agrob Buchtal's Craft series.
