Petersen Tegl is a relatively small manufacturer of facade bricks and floor / wall tiles. All products are made by hand from special clay imported from England. The facade bricks were originally designed in conjunction with Peter Zumthor. During the baking process, the bricks are treated with steam which extracts the Oxigen from the FeO, resulting in a very special colour effect.
The tiles by Petersen Tegl are suitable for both in and outdoor use on floors and walls. There is a range of standard sizes and thicknesses, but the tiles can also be custom made, just as the facade bricks. Because of the production process by hand, custom made tiles can be made even in very limited editions.
