Real oak: solid wood consoles for a very special washbasin area
Besides being popular in all areas of interior design right now, consoles are also a great way to create an individual and cosy look in the bathroom. With its solid wood console made of oak, burgbad has a genuinely natural product in its sys30 range – a custom-sizeable solution for pros that’s a real hit with consumers. Because it doesn’t just look good, it’s sustainably produced as well.
Consoles are a very popular choice for bathroom designers because they open up new potential. When used as the supporting element for countertop basins, for example, they’re a great way to create airy, decorative arrangements. In addition, they allow custom-sized base cabinets and recesses to be incorporated into the design and can be used to integrate all the elements into a harmonious whole.
Every console is a one-off with an individual character
The new solid wood consoles from burgbad don’t just look natural – they really are. The certified knotty oak used to make them is a natural product. As a result, every console is a one-off with a unique grain pattern and vivid structures, sometimes with lots of knots, sometimes with just a few. The rustic charm of the 40mm-thick consoles is underscored by the design: the simulated, softly contoured “live edge”, which imitates the slightly wavy cut edge of rustic planks, creates a particularly authentic look.
Oak consoles now available in a light almond shade too
Besides the “solid honey oak” version launched last year, the solid wood consoles are now also available in a lighter shade by the name of “solid almond oak” – a perfect fit with airy modern arrangements. The surface of the “honey” option looks oiled and is only treated with clear varnish to protect it from moisture, leaving the original colour of the wood and the typical character of the oak visible to create an exceptionally authentic finish.
Made and sized to order
But the solid wood consoles from burgbad aren’t just unique, they can be custom-made as well: the consoles can be sized to order in any length (between 806 and 2406mm) and depth (between 410 and 550mm) starting from a batch size of one, for an industrially produced product made to individual specifications.
A sustainable product, reliable quality
When it comes to wood furniture, knowing that it’s reliably sourced is particularly important – and since 2014, burgbad’s furniture has been made exclusively from PEFC-certified wood from sustainably managed forests. The quality labels awarded to the burgbad collections also include the “Furniture Made in Germany” label of origin launched by the DGM (German Quality Assurance Association for Furniture) just two years ago (development, assembly and quality testing, as well as the quality-relevant manufacturing process, must mainly take place in Germany and the components have to primarily originate from Germany too), and the “Golden M”, the quality label of the German furniture industry that has been certifying the quality of burgbad products for 30 years. In addition, burgbad has been implementing consistent sustainability management for years and has been climate-neutral as defined by the criteria of the DGM since 2016. As a result, burgbad became the world’s first-ever climate-neutral bathroom furniture manufacturer.
The modular sys30 collection – custom-made for an individually furnished, perfectly fitting bathroom
Consoles, cabinets and vanity units: burgbad’s custom-sizeable sys30 bathroom furniture range has everything bathroom planners could possibly wish for when it comes to implementing on-trend designs: consoles in various styles that can be used as airy, wall-mounted counters for sit-on basins; an extensive selection of custom-sizeable base cabinets that can be combined as required; and a wide range of vanity units in all sorts of shapes, materials and styles. Everything from the same manufacturer, the same range, with the same flawless look and feel.
For the consoles, sys30 offers both standard and made-to-measure solutions in a wide range of materials and finishes, even including a “self-healing” nanocoated surface. Besides customised depths and widths, the consoles are also available with various surfaces – melamine, lacquer (matt and high gloss), HPL and real wood veneer – as well as in various thicknesses (10mm, 25mm, 50mm, 87mm and – for the C-shaped console – 450mm). For particularly cosy effects, standard-sized consoles are also available with integrated and dimmable LED lighting that is controlled via a sensor switch (for console thicknesses of 45mm and 70mm).
The company made a decision fifty years ago to switch from the production of building blocks and shelves that it introduced when the company was founded in 1946 and specialize in the production of bathroom furniture. Since then its portfolio and know-how have grown steadily. Operating under the name burgbad, the group of companies with production facilities at its headquarters in Bad Fredeburg in the Westphalian region, in Greding, in Lauterbach-Allmenrod and in Nogent le Roi in France has merged to form a strong brand - with a new logo. The internationally active company has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of the ECZACIBASI Group since 2010 and feels at home anywhere in the world.
As a global market leader, burgbad offers attractive solutions in all bathroom furniture segments - from family-friendly bathrooms in a lacquered, veneered and country style and design-orientated bathroom furniture with a timelessly classic design through to individual room concepts with progressive architecture. burgbad is well-known for innovative interior bathroom concepts that create a homely feel.
