90-Year Old German Engineering Company, BLANCO, says it all in excellence for innovative design. For three generations, BLANCO has quietly and passionately elevated the standards for luxury sinks, faucets and decorative accessories. Proud of its European heritage and award-winning German engineering, BLANCO is steadfastly committed to their tradition of high quality, innovative design and unsurpassed service since 1925
“ATTIKA offers a completely new look with its exclusive raised rim, tailored for architecturally–minded individuals, designers and builders,” states Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “Now, with the addition of the durable Dark Walnut cutting board we are able to craft an area for prep work – ideal for open contemporary living spaces.”
The innovative BLANCO ATTIKA is an Interior Design Best of Year Winner and has won four international design honors including the “Good Design” award, “Best of the Best” Interior Innovation Award, Red Dot Design Award and iF Product Design Award.
“The luxurious BLANCO CERANA makes a statement on many levels,” states Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “Now, with the addition of our unique Biscuit color we are able to offer a warm and neutral feel providing for much more versatility. We’re seeing the fusion of traditional and contemporary in kitchen design today. The same is true of CERANA. The expanded Fireclay collection has introduced a new color that is a perfect match for today’s kitchen trends with natural surfaces and cabinetry.” BLANCO CERANA’s ultra durable surface is fired at over 2,100° F with a center drain location and 9-1/4” bowl depth made of a proprietary Fireclay process allowing for a perfect, smooth, and easy-to-clean exterior. Its durability blended with sophisticated styling and ultra slim design make it one-of-a-kind.
“Undermount sinks, especially in a Super Single configuration continue to be trending in the U.S. market,” Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “The DIAMOND sink continues to be a popular seller, and so we felt offering both the Dual Mount and Super Single Undermount would give designers and homeowners more creative flexibility.”
The new BLANCO QUATRUS accessories make it possible for homeowners to personalize their sink – to enhance cooking, cleaning, entertaining or organizing in style. “Our latest custom accessories are meant to make cooking and cleaning easier for the discerning homeowner who seeks out both style and functionality in their kitchen sink,” states Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “The QUATRUS sink offers affordable style, but it’s not meant as a showpiece.
