In Honor of Alexander Tutsek
Artwork at Koblenz University of Applied Sciences

An installation that depicts and honors important individuals, technologies, and materials of the refractory and ceramics industry was unveiled on the Höhr-Grenzhausen campus of the Koblenz University of Applied Sciences. One of the three works of art pays tribute to the lifework of our founder Alexander Tutsek as a pioneer of the refractory industry. In addition, the installation shows other well-known greats in the field of refractory products: Ferdinand Didier and Carlos Otto. The occasion for the art-in-architecture project was the completion of the European Centre for Refractories (ECREF). This network of various organizations dedicates itself to supporting science, research, as well as training and development in this area.
