Showroom complete bathroom

Have you heard about the showroom complete bathroom in Mettlach? It has taken up residence in a prime location by the River Saar, on the corner of Heinertstraße/Saaruferstraße. In the artistic setting of the former tableware colour laboratory, Villeroy & Boch has created an unconventional display of sanitary ceramics. Originally the preparation area for the coloured glazes for the Mettlach Faiencerie, it now offers customers, partners and tourists a chance to discover modern sanitary ceramics in an industrial atmosphere. Come along and see for yourself.
