A bathroom is a living space. For restoring our strength and recharging our batteries. For refreshment, recovery and relaxation.
And it is a decision. A statement which reflects who you are. Your life-style, your life philosophy.
Today and tomorrow. Sustainable.
We are a family business with deep roots: the fourth generation of this family is now developing and manufacturing superb bathroom objects of superb quality. And we’ve had the same mission for over 100 years: to create perfect solutions using excellent materials and iconic design that meet the highest standards and will suit any room layout.
Whether shower surface, bathtub or washbasin, steel enamel is our raw material, and passion is what drives us: for the greatest precision, for a timeless aesthetic and for the technical challenges that we master as pioneers. This passion is what has set our employees apart for generations. They have made us into a byword for long-lasting bathroom objects. Only they are in a position to meet our demanding standards of product, design and manufacturing quality. Yesterday, today and in future.
If, like us, you have been transforming natural raw materials into long-lasting, timelessly beautiful products for over 100 years, and think in terms of generations, sustainability is firmly and inextricably enshrined in your DNA. Especially since our enamelled steel is probably the most sustainable material for sanitary products, is 100% recyclable and consists of 20% recycled steel.
Naturally, we take an equally consistent approach to conserving resources for production and transport. For the protection of our environment and with an eye to future generations.
In 2017 we received one of the most prestigious sustainability awards for eco-logically outstanding products and buildings – the “Green Good Design Award” – in recognition of our commitment to resource conservation. For us, this is a further step on the road to the future. We are consistently sticking to that path, now being the first in our industry to have each of our products certified to meet the criteria of the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).
We don’t only pay lip service to sustainability. We live it and we produce it. Proof of that lies in the natural raw materials of glass and steel which we use to make our bathroom objects. Two authentic, natural materials with unique material properties. Steel signifies strength, toughness, robustness and ductility. Glass has a superbly luxurious look and is ultra resistant to chemical and thermal stress. KALDEWEI steel enamel combines robust steel and resilient glass to form an inseparable bond harnessing the strengths of each material in perfect symbiosis.
The proof that alongside quality and sustainability we also set great store by immaculate beauty, is evident from our over 150 awards such as the Red Dot Design Award, Plus X Award, Iconic Awards, Interior Innovation Award and IF Product Design Award. Thanks to you, we are one of the most garlanded manufacturers of bathroom objects in the world. Our designers devise pro-ducts, looks and shapes that lend your bathroom its distinctive character and timeless beauty.
