Petersen’s handcrafted KolumbaTM range was developed in 2000 in conjunction with Swiss Architect, Peter Zumthor, for the Kolumba Museum in Germany. KolumbaTM is a handmade, long-shaped brick suitable for both outdoor and indoor projects, as well as a vertical or horizontal use. These beautiful, unique bricks are available in the standard format (528 x 108 x 37mm) and can also be custom made.
The classic Petersen brick is waterstruck and coal-fired, and is available in 39 different colours or can be custom blended to suit your needs. Among the classic bricks is a range of specials for window sills, pillars and corners, along with lintels for large spans, suspended lintels, soldier courses, rowlocks and arches.
Petersen CoverTM is 100% handmade and fired at high temperatures. It’s fastened to an underlying structure, so the bricks lie accurately on the building surface.
