Kährs Group unveil new wood designs and introduce ‘Kährs Luxury Tiles’ at BAU
Europe market-leading wood flooring manufacturer Kährs Group have introduced a range of new flooring designs during Munich’s BAU show in January. Innovative wood designs for 2019 were presented, including reclaimed-themed designs, ultra matt wood floors and a brand new ‘Boardwalk’ collection of modern rustic wood floors. However, stealing the show was the Group’s exciting launch of an entirely new product category – Kährs Luxury Tiles.
Over 250,000 visitors enjoyed BAU 2019, the ‘World´s Leading Trade Fair for Architecture, Materials and Systems’ held in Munich, Germany this January. With an impressive exhibition stand spanning over 200 sqm – including an integrated bar area – Kährs proudly showcased their new 2019 wood flooring designs with large, striking wall samples and within an example ‘shop-in-shop’ point of sale concept. These included an entire new modern rustic collection ‘Boardwalk’ comprising of four single strip, handscraped designs. Following the success of ultra matt wood collections ‘Lux’ and ‘Lumen’ last year, new grey and white toned ultra matt lacquered designs in Kährs ‘Capital’ and ‘Lumen’ collections were also introduced, alongside three reclaimed-themed designs with a unique, worn appearance. XL board formats and rustic herringbone designs with saw marks were also displayed, and will be available in the UK later in the year.
Shown for the first time at BAU, ‘Kährs Luxury Tiles’ is a comprehensive offering of modern, waterproof
and phthalate-free luxury tile designs in Dry Back, Click and Loose Lay. The LT product range includes
over 170 wood and stone designs that utilise high-resolution technology with no repetition and a highly
durable ceramic coating – the most abrasion resistant and robust coating on the market. The range also introduces a selection of PVC-free designs with especially low VOC values – Dry Back Enomer®, and a Marine range available for marine ship projects.
Kährs UK and IE Country Manager Alex Davidson commented, “During the BAU 2019 show we showcased everything you would expect from the Kährs Group; exciting new wood flooring designs and product collections as well as patterned floors and XL wide board formats, new innovative point of sale concepts, a new Design Story brochure, along with something we are not currently known for; Luxury Tiles.
We have taken our core skills and knowledge from working with wood flooring for over 160 years with
regards to innovation, product design, environmental supply chain and consumer considerations; this has set the benchmark for launching our Kährs LT range.
The Kährs LT range includes a strong assortment of over 170 products; Dryback, Rigid Core Click SPC 5G with underlay, Loose Lay, vinyl free Enomer®, and Marine classification products. The products have the highest specification as standard when compared to what is currently on offer in the UK market both in the retail and project channels, whilst offering significant value compared to other branded LVT suppliers.
We look forward to taking up exciting discussions with our customer base over the next few months and sharing full details on our new LT range, along with details on our new 2019 wood flooring products and collections.”
