Founded in 1791 and now in the hands of the seventh and eighth generations of the family, the Danish brick manufacturer Petersen Tegl works closely with some of the finest architects in the world. The company’s range of handmade bricks includes Kolumba and Petersen Cover, both manufactured according to centuries-old craft traditions. After processing the clay, the bricks are formed in wooden moulds, then dried and fired. The range of water-struck, 100% coal-fired bricks is produced by special machines that pay homage to age-old artisan techniques. The coal-firing endows the bricks with a rich play of colours. Last but by no means least, Petersen Tegl is increasingly involved in developing customized formats and colours for specific projects.
