Fill your life with naturalness

Whatever has brought you here, be it our extensive range of colours, or the quality of our BetteGlaze®, dip in and find out more about our material and our attitude with regard to sustainability.

Sustainability is important to us. And has been for over 60 years.

Back in 1952, Bette opted for the natural materials steel and glass. The careful use of natural resources is something that is very close to our hearts. Because sustainability is a programme at Bette, and not a trendy buzzword.

Clean production

Every Bette product is made individually and entirely without chemicals and solvents.

High durability

Bette bathroom products are extremely robust and remain permanently brilliant. This is down to the high quality standards that we set ourselves. Because if something lasts a long time, it's much better for the environment.

Ecological compatibility

Due to their environmentally-friendly production and durability, Bette products are ideal for sustainable building projects.

Durable aesthetics

People still love our products even after decades. That's due not only to the high quality of our material, but also to the design and especially the flawless finish.

Absolute transparency

This is something we're truly proud of: Bette products are verified to the Environmental Product Declaration as per ISO 14025, and the U. S. Green Building Council as per LEED.

Local production

All Bette bathroom products are made exclusively on our own site in Delbrück.

Short routes

We work together with partner companies in the region. This saves time and fuel.

Full recyclability

All glazed bathroom elements are 100% recyclable.

Sustainable production

We use our materials with maximum efficiency, so there is hardly any waste. And of course, we are constantly working on optimising our processes and reducing our material consumption. We generate 2/3 of our energy requirements with regenerative sources when the sun is shining.

We are firmly committed to sustainable industry.

Sustainability is not only a matter for the managers at Bette, but an attitude that is backed up by the entire Bette team. Why? This is how our Managing Partner Thilo C. Pahl sums it up.

"We are firmly committed to sustainable industry. Thinking ecologically, acting responsibly and sustainably – that has always been a principle by which the whole company lives. So what exactly does that mean? We contribute to the environmentally-friendly use of natural resources by carefully selecting our materials and using energy efficiently and sparingly. Another key factor is that the design quality should be permanently valid. Durability applies both to the design language and to the material."

Thilo C. Pahl, Managing Partner

And this is what our customers say: 

"The Baufritz company has specialised in ecological house building for decades. All of the building materials have been tested. We do not use any toxic adhesives, no polystyrene, no PU foams. For us, 'Good for man and nature' is a conviction that is deeply rooted throughout the company. And that includes the fact that I only use healthy, valuable materials in the interior design of the show homes. And that quickly leads us on to Bette and their products made of glazed titanium steel."

Sigrid Krämer, interior designer for the Baufritz company

A flurry of colour

Sustainable and a feeling for trends is not a contradiction in terms. This is evident from a look at the Colour Trends 2020 by the Natural Colour Academy in Sweden. Its main topic for the new decade: Awareness. The open look at colours that reflect topics that move us today and at the same time are of the future. This is what inspires us at Bette. Does it you?

At Bette, we frequently cast our eye towards Scandinavia when it comes to design trends, and when we find something exciting, we share it. Like the work of the Natural Colour Academy in Stockholm. In Colour Trends 2020, the Swedes have developed their own colour system that defines colour standards for the new decade across all applications in architecture or product design. The approach: colour is the expression of the current moment. This also includes what we emotionally associate with it, what moves us and shapes us for the future. This additional passionate dimension is what makes the Swedish trend researchers' colour scheme so inspiring.

Every shade has its own effect.

We like this keen feeling for colourfulness, because it matches our own use of materials and shapes. There's a thought, a philosophy, in every nuance. Shades of Incognito are greys and browns that we can't get enough of. They represent our design for privacy in a world that is increasingly digitally controlled. The reds and pastels in the New Masculinity colour palette create a tasteful space that celebrates the individual, celebrates being human, questions traditional stereotypes, and breaks down boundaries. The colours become smart with the shades of blue in Human Identity that reflect the merging of human and artificial intelligence.

Natural accents are provided by the rust red and bright blue shades in the Evolving Eclecticism concept that reminds us to use resources with care. Have you noticed anything yet? These are not only colours, but also the social trends that surround us today. The Natural Colour Academy has combined them under the topic of Awareness.

"This awareness affects every aspect of life; how we live, how we consume, and how we feel as people," explain the colour experts.

Colours for a new decade

Your bathroom is designed to stay. You should get as much pleasure from looking at your bathroom the day after tomorrow as you do today. Which is why we want to tell you about the Colour Trends 2020. They illustrate that you can change your awareness when you start to address the colours of your surroundings.

Who are you, and who would you like to be? What matters to you? The Colours Trends 2020 are an invitation to reveal your personality through colour, and to be more mindful with yourself and your environment. 

This is not a contrast to the purism that we love so much at Bette. It is a dimension of awareness that beautifully complements our philosophy. We think white is exciting. At least, it is when we think of our bathroom products. But sometimes it needs a little variety for a fresh impulse, a different mood, a new expression of our Self. Which is why we at Bette find the Colour Trends 2020 so exciting.

This carefully chosen selection is sure to contain plenty that will suit you and your bathroom. And if you'd like even more options for expressing yourself completely: we have a total of more than 400 shades for you to choose from that will ensure our bathroom elements will go along with whatever you have planned for your individual design project.
