The haute couture of bricks
Petersen Tegl Kolumba™ is a range of handmade, horizontal
building ceramics intended for both masonry and tiling.
Kolumba™ bricks are manufactured according to centuries-old craft traditions. Once the clay has been processed, the bricks are handmade in wooden moulds after which they are dried and fired. Varying temperatures in the firing process give the bricks a mixture of textures and beautiful shades.
Kolumba™ has the standard format 528 x 108 x 37 mm but can also be delivered in custom sizes. We also strive to meet all requests for special colours or brick surfaces.
Kolumba™ was developed in 2000 in cooperation between the Swiss architect Peter Zumthor and Petersen Tegl for the Kolumba Museum in Cologne, Germany. Today, Kolumba™ bricks are used in buildings all over the world.
