Petersen Tegl

During 3daysofdesign – Petersen Studio hosts an exhibition of contemporary architecture and design projects that show, the versatility of fired clay. The designs are supported by numerous handmade and customized samples, offering a rare opportunity to understand the possibilities of the ancient building material.

Founded in 1791, the Danish brick manufacturer Petersen Tegl produces a range of handmade bricks including 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.

Petersen Tegl works closely together with architects all over the world and is increasingly involved in developing bricks in customized formats and colours for specific projects.
