What makes Sommerhuber unique? We manufacture a range of spa and heat experiences with our customised heat-storage ceramics which instill a feeling of cosiness and intimacy in the spa environment. Producing an inimitable relaxation experience, our products and their unique designs are sure to impress all who experience them.


Why are heat experiences important to the spa journey? At Sommerhuber, our customised spa equipment makes use of the benefi ts of mild heat radiation through our heat storage ceramic. It’s been proven that long-wave, infra-red rays have a tranquilising eff ect on the autonomic nervous system and thus promote vitality. This ‘healthy radiation’ can also help to improve circulation, relieve tension and increase each guest’s wellbeing and vitality. Users feel good and can just let go and leave their everyday life behind.


How important is style and design and how do you balance functionality with aesthetics? It is possible to use the inherent properties of a ceramic tile to store and release heat through gentle radiation. In terms of design functionality, large-area


ceramics can be used in heat experiences that meet the highest standards of hygiene and construction. This leads to a fl uidity of design and a pleasing aesthetic while meeting the more practical concerns of hygiene and heat economy.


Which recent projects are you most proud of and why? Our Healing Clay Spa incorporates the ritual element of an Oriental spa treatment and we believe we’ve created a unique wellness oasis for the spa area. Ceramic radiant heat and velvety surfaces provide the optimal comfortable seating for true and deep relaxation. Therapeutic clay mud treatments can be performed to their full capabilities while their vitalising eff ect helps to rejuvenate the entire body.


What new trends have you seen emerging? One of the latest trends is towards a gentler design language. This type of design, that perfectly links soft shapes and outstanding design, enables the creation of intuitive heat experiences that deliver pleasure at the highest level, as well as balancing the body, mind and soul.
