As a results of the shopper enter, Corobrik has added the travertine end to 4 of its current well-known Satin face bricks, together with Black, Onyx, Titanium, and Platinum.

It has worked out quite well, and the products have been launched. Again, that has purely been due to the engagement with our client base and the constructive feedback we receive,” says van Heerden.
Architect Johan Wentzel explains that W Design Architecture Studio has carried out just a few initiatives the place it mixed a travertine end face brick with Corobrik’s Black Brick Satin. “It was readily apparent that the travertine was forgiving in terms of allowing for a much better overall finish. This resulted in our suggestion to Corobrik to include a travertine finish on its flagship range.”
Architect Grete Van As provides that W Design Architecture Studio was excited to obtain a pattern of the brand new product. “Our initial order has already been delivered to site for an office development we are working on. We think that architects are really going to love the travertine finish. It will change the way that architects use black bricks in their designs.” A specific benefit of the brand new face brick is that it may be mixed with the satin end, permitting for distinctive patterning to be created.
Another new addition to the Corobrik vary is the Nougat clay paver. “Again, this came about due to feedback from customers to say we see a trend in the paving and flooring market for natural colours, what can we do?” says van Heerden. Corobrik took on the problem and produced such a heat, gentle, and pure color that Nougat appeared an applicable identify.
“There is definitely a demand for such a colour range in the paver segment, and we look forward to developing further new products as well as extending our existing paver range,” concludes van Heerden.
