The Hochkönig

Dienten, Austria

Inspired by the Japanese Wabi Sabi concept of aesthetics and the true beauty of natural raw materials, a surface has been developed that showcases the true material character and brings it to life in the form of “refined nature”. A new production technology allows Rieder to give the panels back their characteristic concrete surface with an interplay of color shades and cloud effects. The natural imperfection and irregularity in the appearance of the vintage panel gives the facade a unique appearance and, above all, individuality since no one panel is like another. The combination of old craft and new knowledge finds expression in this new surface, together with a quest for simplicity and naturalness. The focus on the essentials and the visual randomness create the charm of the vintage surface.
