TORONTO, Jan. 19th, 2017 – The revolutionary BLANCO IKON® farmhouse sink collection from Blanco receives colour and model expansion. As homeowners love the unique style of the apron front sink design, with IKON®, there is a durable, beautiful alternative to the ceramic, stainless steel, or copper materials that are most commonly used. The BLANCO IKON® is the world’s first apron front sink made of natural granite composite, SILGRANIT® material. It will not scratch or stain, maintaining its beauty for many years, while being both extremely hard-wearing and exceptionally easy to clean.
Blanco is pleased to announce that IKON® collection will now be offered in two size variations – the original IKON® 30 and a new larger version IKON® 33. IKON® 30 is now available in stock in all seven SILGRANIT® colours: Anthracite, Café, Cinder, Metallic Gray, Truffle, Biscuit and White. IKON® 33’s availability is expected for Summer 2017 starting with four colours: Anthracite, Café, Metallic Gray and White. With its slightly angled apron design, the IKON® adds an architectural element to any kitchen. For increased functionality, there is also a unique, optional Floating Grid available, designed to handle the weight of pots and pans while gently floating along the inner sink walls. The Floating Grid offers a functional comfort level for prepping and cleaning, and can also be used as a trivet on the countertop. IKON® sinks can be matched with a variety of BLANCO kitchen faucets in popular Stainless Finish and Chrome assortment, as well as with a large selection of SILGRANIT® colour-match and dual finishes.
“The BLANCO IKON® collection continues to reflect our commitment to innovation,” says Blanco’s Senior Marketing Manager, Edyta Drutis. ”Made in Canada, this product is a pinnacle of our efforts to offer the trendy farmhouse style in our beautiful and durable SILGRANIT® material. Moreover, in 2017, Blanco is leading the apron front sinks category with a wide array of choices offering the popular farmhouse style in stainless steel, ceramic / fireclay and our exclusive STEELART®, and SILGRANIT® sink material options.”
