At Geberit Innovation Days, CEO Christian Buhl welcomed visitors to the interactive event, which featured the company’s product launches for 2021.
The three-day event was based in The House of Geberit, constructed from the company’s installation system which is normally used to build pre-walls for bathrooms.
Christian Buhl said it demonstrated the “full competence of Geberit behind and in front of the wall” and was created to inspire viewers.
He commented: “We have the relevant knowhow and long-term experience to support wholesalers, planners, installers, architects and consumers with the right value-added solutions for their needs.”
And Buhl added: “The synergy of technical competence behind the wall and design competence in front of the wall makes Geberit and our products unique. The House of Geberit combines these two worlds into one.”
The bathroom manufacturer introduced Sigma cisterns with integrated hygiene flush, its flagship series Geberit One and Selnova “characterised by a very good price performance ratio”.
