Layered masonry for exterior applications

Truffer AG’s core competence is the production of layered masonry and exterior pavers.

Layered masonry was first supplied for the Therme Spa in Vals, completed in 1996. Since then, this type of product has been used in numerous projects. Most notably, the company supplied 10,000m² of layered masonry for the Rocksresort in Laax, Switzerland, and 4,000m² for the US Embassy in Oslo, Norway.

Interior and exterior floor tiles for commercial and residential projects

Truffer AG produces quality floor tiles for interior and exterior applications in various formats and finishes, ranging from a small bathroom to the headquarters of a multinational corporation.

They supplied floor tiles for many residential projects such as a private villa in Luzern, but also commercial projects, including the headquarters of Eaton Corporation in Cleveland, Ohio, US, and Sky Key in Zürich.

Truffer AG has also provided Vals Quartzite floor tiles for various boutique projects such as Chanel, Zegna and Audemars Piquet.

Stone parquet for exterior floor paving

Truffer AG has developed a stone parquet, which represents a modern alternative to traditional paving.

The precisely cut material allows for an equally precise laying process with minimal joints.

Among others, the company has supplied stone parquet for the 14,000m² Sechseläuten Plaza in Zürich, Switzerland, and the 1,500m² Bank für Tirol building in Innsbruck, Austria.

Haus Bauma state-of-the-art headquarters

A few years ago, Truffer made the decision to build a commercial and residential building in Vals, Switzerland. Finding an architect for this project was of paramount importance due to the company’s involvement in stone and its applications in a variety of projects, and Japanese architect Kengo Kuma was the perfect person for the job. The building is primarily made of stone, wood, metal and glass, fitting beautifully with the natural surroundings and creating a sense of harmony and unity as the building’s new and pioneering architecture reflects the environment. The interior, which will be used for client meetings but also for cultural exhibitions, concerts and other events, consists of stone applications everywhere, and the ground floor features wood and masonry.
