As natural tones make their way back to the kitchen, German sink and faucet forerunner BLANCO offers a smart take on neutrals to fit every style—be it organic warmth, toned-down elegance or clean modern. Offering flexibility and longevity in design, these neutral selections become striking essentials in any kitchen setting.
Take BLANCO’s newly released IKON® Farmhouse sink—a low-divide apron front made with the brand’s exclusive SILGRANIT® granite composite material. The embodiment of ergonomic style, the new 33-inch apron 1-3/4 sink makes a statement in any of SILGRANIT’s eight neutral colorways: Anthracite, Concrete Gray (the newest shade), Metallic Gray, White, Café Brown, Biscuit, Cinder and Truffle.
“We spend countless hours analyzing color trends to find timeless neutrals that offer a fresh, sophisticated look, which seamlessly blends in a way that is practical, while inspirational,” says Tim Maicher, BLANCO’s Director/Head of Product Management for North America. As with every one of SILGRANIT’s award-winning colors, Concrete Gray provides endless design possibilities, matching today’s trending materials and complementing a wide range of cabinetry and countertops for a cool, modern look.
From material to sink design, BLANCO products redefine and enhance the look and function of modern kitchens. Comfort, productivity and efficiency were top of mind when creating the IKON Farmhouse sink, making prepping, cooking and cleaning easier and more enjoyable for the end user. “Not only do these sinks enhance the kitchen experience with their ergonomic design features, they are also beautiful statement pieces available in a range of on-trend colors constructed with our extraordinarily durable and easy-to-clean patented SILGRANIT material,” Maicher says. SILGRANIT further elevates kitchen function with its Hygienic-Plus surface, which reduces bacteria growth by up to 98% while also being heat and scratch-resistant.
The IKON’s low divide accommodates large pots and baking sheets, while optional accessories, such as a floating grid and cutting board, offer enhanced convenience. “When you break it down, the sink is the most used area in the kitchen by everyone in the household,” Maicher says. “By offering optional accessories with design details that include the low divide and apron front, we created a system that not only accommodates all users but enhances the workflow.”
At BLANCO, ergonomics and technology merge beautifully with modern design.
