"ICONIC AWARDS 2019: Innovative Architecture":
System Surf: an award-winning solution

The winners of the "ICONIC AWARDS 2019: Innovative Architecture" have been selected and can look forward to this top-class award. One of the winners is the system Surf, which is offered by the Agrob Buchtal brand in cooperation with the bathroom system specialist Gerloff & Söhne (Eschwege).

The system offers monolithic washbasins made of ceramic tiles (45 x 80 and 55 x 120 centimetres) and a ceramic shower floor in the format of 60 x 120 centimetres.Essential advantages are the puristic design language, jointless individual surfaces, an aesthetic look and the discreet water drainage. Shower floor and washbasin can be used in contrasting, corresponding or tone-in-tone style with wall and floor tiles of the brand Agrob Buchtal. This variable interplay permits coherent, comprehensive room concepts with creative stringency and distinctive individuality thanks to a wide range of possible combinations. The high quality of design and workmanship also convinced the jury of experts, who lended system Surf the distinction ICONIC AWARDS 2019 : Innovative Architecture – Winner (Product category). The awards will be presented on 7 October 2019 at a festive event at the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich.

The shower floor in the format of 60 x 120 cm is not only comfortable and spacious, but also extremely representative. Recognizable on the upper long side: the transverse groove (function: see motif 8 and motif 9).

Motif 8 (Source: AGROB BUCHTAL GmbH)

The ceramic cover “Slot” (motive 8) makes the shower floor drain amazingly inconspicuous. As with the washbasin, the water is led to a transverse groove in the transition area between floor and wall and then discretely led to the drain via capillary effect (motif 9).
