The market launch of stainless steel kitchen worktops in Durinox some years ago was a quantum leap for the Blanco SteelArt high-tech production facility. The fantastic looks and excellent performance characteristics of this fascinating material innovation are unparalleled. Because the remarkable thing about Durinox is that it is extremely resistant to scratching and more than twice as hard as conventional stainless steel. Another characteristic feature is the matt velvet look of its homogeneous surface.

The new premium bowl line Blanco Pleon in Silgranit PuraDur offers plenty of design freedom and flexibility. With its linear design, eye-catching corner and base radii and generous dimensions, it delights in all ten colours in the CombiColours range. There are three designs to choose from, all notable for their particularly spacious bowls with the exceptional depth of 220 mm that will meet with equal enthusiasm in a family kitchen, apartment or office kitchen.
As the German market leader for kitchen taps, Blanco also has numerous perfectly designed solutions for that ever-popular spot for the sink: in front of the window. Blanco Laressa-F adds a particularly clever control concept and modern looks to the series of mixer taps for installation in front of a window.
They are both primeval symbols and their respective counterparts: circle and square. The new high-end line Artago made of Silgranit PuraDur features both basic geometric shapes as key design elements. The innovative round bowl with square outer contours is fascinating with its contrasting design and makes for exciting highlights in contemporary kitchens.
When Blanco presents its innovations at the international kitchen fair in Cologne, customers can again expect an atmospheric, highly impressive staging of the company's latest products and ideas. And there's more: this year, the sink and mixer tap specialist is taking up one of the latest digital trends, and for the first time will display virtual kitchen worlds at its stand.
Smart and elegant – the innovative InFino drain system for premium and high-end sinks. The modern drain, which is virtually flush in the base of the bowl, is controlled by an intuitive turning motion – and also by remote control if desired. To achieve this, Blanco now presents the new "Advanced" segment with two innovative operating concepts that add an individual, very special touch to contemporary kitchens. Blanco SensorControl Blue embodies the ultimate in design, comfort and technology. A gentle touch of the flat, round control surface is all it takes for InFino to open and close reliably without having to reach into the dishwater.
Large single bowls without a drainer are on trend – and with carefully planned accessories, create a practical zone in the kitchen for preparing and washing up. Blanco’s innovative, high-end bowl concept Blanco Etagon sets totally new standards with regard to functionality and aesthetics. Available both in stainless steel satin polish and Silgranit PuraDur, it includes four models for the 60 cm wide base cabinet. The three-tier sink system has a clever refinement – two high-quality stainless steel runners, specifically developed for Etagon.
As ever, AXen sinks from Blanco are one of the highlights of the kitchen industry. Since its première 15 years ago, the AXen concept, which is available in three materials (stainless steel, Silgranit and ceramic) and for all base cabinet sizes, has been consistently developed and designed to match the habits of contemporary users. Blanco now presents the third generation: with two Silgranit models in a fundamentally new look and some interesting changes for all the stainless steel AXen models.
Aesthetically appealing solutions that are well-planned down to the last detail – another Blanco quality. The latest coup from the sink specialists concerns water drainage and its control, the essential feature at the heart of every bowl. The innovative drain system celebrating its première at Gut Böckel is called Blanco InFino, and can be used for all the manufacturer’s sink materials. Operation is intuitive and the technology is fascinating: a simple turning movement to left or right will open and close it.
Combining modern interiors with carefully chosen flea market finds can add a trendy flair to a traditional home. BLANCO’s new premium mixer tap line satisfies the best of both worlds with subtle, retro details. The BLANCO LIVIA-S tap cleverly combines classic and contemporary design with three exclusive finishes.
BLANCO presents a single bowl for installation from above as well as a range of undermounted sinks. Another attractive, timeless ceramic sink is added to the repertoire; BLANCO PALONA is designed for 60cm base units, with an eye-catching bowl radius of just 12mm.
For most people, there will never be enough space in the kitchen, so it's important to make the most of every millimetre of working and storage space. BLANCO, a specialist in sinks and mixer taps, presents the BLANCODELTA II sink in Silgranit PuraDur as the perfect solution for corner storage. The latest generation of the popular DELTA sink is notable for its contemporary design, clever details and much bigger main bowl.
Steam cooking has long been a staple of professional caterers and, with the help of modern appliances, this gentle cooking method is also finding its way into the domestic sphere. Steamed fish, meat and vegetables retain almost all of their natural nutrition, flavour and aroma. To make the preparation and presentation of steamed food even easier, BLANCO has developed a Silgranit sink designed specifically to accommodate steaming accessories.
When planning a new kitchen, well-planned, functional solutions are tantamount, especially around the sink area where most preparation takes place. The BLANCO CLASSIC Neo has been launched to provide such a solution. The hugely successful precursor, the BLANCO CLASSIC, is now presented with an entirely new look and some exclusive, practical additions.
The high-tech BLANCO SteelArt production facility has redefined stainless steel with the exclusive BLANCO Durinox worktop. Durinox is extremely resistant to scratches and has a luxurious velvety-matt feel. The surface is now also available for ZEROX bowls, front and back panels for even greater flexibility. BLANCO SteelArt is now extending the programme with a new edge design for Durinox worktops.
Combining puristic design and a high level of functionality is an art in itself – especially in the kitchen, which can be simultaneously a cooking hub and a comfortable entertaining space. BLANCO ANDANO XL 6 S-IF and BLANCO ANDANO XL 6 S-IF Compact fulfil both requirements with ease. The two new stainless steel sinks perfectly combine elegant design and practical function.
Let's fact it, who pays much attention to the rim when buying a sink? Although most of the work in the kitchen is carried out at the sink, the decision to buy is usually based on the material, features and overall shape. And yet so many of the practical and optical features are hidden in the details. The method of installation is also important. The Blanco product programme offers six different installation solutions and lots of freedom for individual kitchen plans.
Square or round? This is a matter of style preference, and it's one that applies as much in the kitchen as anywhere else. And attention is paid to the mixer tap in particular, since its location means it is a focal point of your kitchen. Blanco Carena and Blanco Jurena offer attractive solutions. The two new mixer tap lines are based on the same design concept and yet look completely different.
Surprisingly easy to look after, hygienic and scratchproof, heat-resistant, fade resistant, colourfast and therefore exceptionally durable: Blanco sinks made of Silgranit PuraDur combine all the characteristics required to cope with intensive daily use for the entire life of a kitchen – and still look good after many years. Available in countless different designs, sizes and colours, the extensive range of sinks leaves nothing to be desired.
Those who are in the process of buying a new sink have a tremendous range of models, designs and materials to choose from. And the new sink line Blanco Sona is proof indeed that there is no need to dispense with functionality or comfort even at entry level. Available in five models for the four main sink cabinet sizes, it offers sturdy solutions for a wide range of planning situations. Yet with its modern, unobtrusive design, Sona blends harmoniously with any kitchen environment. Made of Silgranit, the new sink series also appeals for its excellent care properties, pleasant silky-stony feel and high resilience. Nine attractive colours guarantee combinations that perfectly match the surrounding environment.
Even people who take care to produce as little waste as possible still need a solution for separating recyclable materials from the other waste. It is advisable to locate the waste system directly underneath the sink. This saves time and energy, as it is precisely where fruit and vegetable waste, packaging materials and paper are disposed of on a daily basis. Blanco Select is already appealing with its clever details that make daily life in the kitchen remarkably easier.
The success story of the mixer tap Blancoculina-S, winner of numerous international design awards, continues unabated. From now, discerning amateur chefs suffering from limited upward space have the perfect solution in Blancoculina-S Mini. The installed height of this semi-professional mixer tap is a little lower than normal, which makes it ideal for use in kitchens with wall units.
A year after its premiere, Blanco Durinox has lost nothing of its fascination. Quite the opposite, in fact: at the autumn trade fairs, this material innovation by Blanco SteelArt proved to be something of a visitor magnet at Gut Böckel. That's because the specialist for exclusive sinks and made-to-measure stainless steel worktops with integrated working areas has refined Durinox yet again. The impressive results are the gentle gloss of the surface and a material that is even more velvety to the touch than before. The stainless steel gloss is also a little more noticeable. At the same time, the Durinox surface has retained its unique, matt-shimmering looks
Symmetries and balanced proportions are a particular delight for those aesthetes who deliberately choose clear, pared-down forms - including in the kitchen. The new Blanco Jaron XL 6 S-IF sink is an exquisite eye-catcher. The art of symmetry has been perfectly implemented in this novelty from the SteelArt production facility of the sink and mixer tap specialist Blanco: both the main bowl and the drainer are square, and the two are joined together by a wide tap ledge in the middle. The ultra-flat all-round IF rim creates an optically elegant, functional frame. The brilliantly balanced design language of the Jaron XL 6 S-IF creates a discreet and harmonious elegance that delights the viewer's eye with even the tiniest details.
Colours are a first-class style tool for adding more individuality, or even a whole new look, to a living world, for optically separating rooms or consciously connecting them. Blanco, the world's leading manufacturer of granite sinks, offers an attractive range of contemporary colours in its CombiColours palette. It facilitates a perfect match between sinks, mixer taps and kitchens in every stylistic facet. And now a new colour is celebrating its premiere: pearl grey is the latest addition to the CombiColours palette for Silgranit sinks. The understated shade of mid-grey radiates a modern, natural cosiness. Subtle shades of beige enhance its soft elegance. Pearl grey is both sophisticated and natural in combination with the pleasant stone character of Silgranit.
Straight lines and a puristic ambience: a trend that is also reflected in kitchen sink design. One of the most important requirements in sink design today is having a single, very large bowl, and users are happy to go without half- and additional bowls to get one. Currently the leading manufacturer in this field, Blanco has the most comprehensive range of XL sinks. The company offers 35 inset sinks in the three materials stainless steel, Silgranit and ceramic, with the options ranging from basic to high-end versions. There is a broad range of contemporary designs with plenty of choice for any planning requirement. Twenty-eight models alone have been designed for the most popular 60-cm wide sink cabinet, and fully utilise the available space.
A new building, house move or renovation are perfect opportunities to create a contemporary interior. A modern kitchen, for instance, will not only bring more comfort and functionality into the household, but will also lift the spirits - with fresh designs and innovative materials. Colours play an extremely important part in the overall effect.
Stainless steel sinks radiate a timeless, classic aesthetic and brilliance. With their gently shining surfaces, they integrate happily in any kitchen environment. The material is also completely heatproof, safe for use with food, hygienic and easy to look after.
