It all began with the need for ecological building. Frank Reiche and Robert Schwemmer developed the vision and the demand for pure, natural, and contaminant-free building materials. After performing scientific studies, the decisive breakthrough for producing sustainable and innovative products was found in cattail. Its natural moisture regulation provides a healthy, comfortable room climate, yet it is still resilient. When processed, cattail also does not require any further additives that are harmful to our environment. While growing, it takes in an amount of CO2 many times greater than that of our forests over a comparable period of time. For CO2 neutral building, this is a key advantage.

Even today, our vision goes on and we are making visible tracks: We use nature’s strengths to create living spaces, using clean technologies to tailor them to the ecological needs of our time. Our sustainability policy guarantees it.











We make ecologically sustainable products

using success models in nature.
