From sautéed potatoes to a four-course meal – we have high expectations of our kitchen interiors today. And to make sure that the preparations are as much fun as the end product, there are lots of design options for the central workplace that is the sink. An attractive, elegant yet well-planned design is essential, especially if the kitchen and living area cross over. Appealing accents can be added, for instance, by the exclusive Blancoandano single and double bowls. The extensive new bowl programme in stainless steel is the perfect composition of functional and aesthetic elements.
Stylish design elements are provided in particular by the reduced corner and bottom radii. The harmonious interplay with the elegant satin polish surface enhances the beautifully proportioned overall appearance of the bowl, and meets the spirit of contemporary kitchen culture. The optimum functionality is also guaranteed. Every version has an impressive bowl depth of 190 mm and, thanks to the tighter bottom radius, full use can be made of the entire bowl area. The commitment to accurate lines is also evident in the details. The bowls all have the concealed, easy-to-clean C-overflow and a modern basket strainer.
The optional accessory that also plays a key role with Andano is the perfect match in form and function. A multifunctional colander to hang over the side and a decorative silver-effect glass cutting board greatly enhance flowing work sequences when preparing meals, and provide additional surfaces to work on. The practical drainer that is positioned at the side also increases comfort when working in the kitchen. The CapFlow is both clever and useful. Water lands gently on this beautifully shaped round cover for the outflow, which helps to reduce irritating splashes. A virtuous duet is created in combination with Blancovonda, the new cylindrical mixer tap.
There is a choice of seven different bowl sizes and 14 versions, because the individual models are available for undermounting and with the ultra flat IF flat-fitting rim for installation from above. Here too, the decision is based on personal tastes. Those who would like to have a beautiful worktop in natural stone as the focus should choose one of the undermount models, while those favour an elegant, almost flush-fit look and would rather have the accent on the satin polish finish of the stainless steel sink can choose an Andano bowl with the ultra flat IF rim for conventional installation. This means that precise, flush-mount installation is also possible. But whichever version sets the tone in the modern kitchen, the contemporary design of Andano reflects its users’ attitude to life.
