In the aesthetically-driven society that we live in, form and function must stand on equal footing in order for any product to be successful. And when it comes to designing kitchen sinks, both of these qualities must be truly exceptional if a sink is to have any sort of competitive edge. There may have been a time when kitchen sinks were merely a tool for everyday kitchen chores, but that time is long gone. Modern sinks have developed new purpose as a salient design element within the kitchen – an element which has the ability to altogether transform a room’s appearance. The exquisite design artistry of the Franke Sinos Sink certainly affirms this transformational quality! And its elegantly curved contours, refined finishes and innovative functionality, have attracted much attention from the ‘public eye’ in recent years, thanks to the coveted ‘Red Dot’ Award. Why The ‘Red Dot’ Award Is Every Designers Dream In order to win over the 37-member jury of design experts, the Sinos Stainless Steel Kitchen Sink, had to meet rigorous scrutiny. Criteria such as compelling aesthetic form, well-conceived innovation and ground-breaking functionality made for a challenging competition, but to Franke’s delight, their Sinos Sink came out head and shoulders above the hundreds of designs that were submitted. Attaining the ‘Red Dot’ Award has not only given Franke a distinguished quality stamp, but has also supported their ‘make it wonderful’ claim, which sets out to transform the ordinary into something wonderful. Myria Aeschbacher, Franke Kitchen Systems Marketing Communications Manager had the following to say about the award: “It fascinates me to see something so beautiful made out of something so simple. Only the whole team working closely together makes it possible.” Contact: Franke
