BLANCO has proudly won the 2012 GOOD DESIGN Award for its beautiful BLANCO MODEX™ kitchen sink workstation and for the BLANCO CERANA™, the uniquely reversible apron front fireclay sink. Presented by the world famous Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design along with The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, the award is given for design in excellence worldwide.
CERANA is BLANCO’s first Fireclay sink in the U.S. market, and offers a unique reversible design that goes from traditional to contemporary while offering exceptional style and versatility. The smooth non-porous finish makes it easy to keep clean while the ultra-slim shape makes it simple to install.
BLANCO’s award-winning MODEX offers a distinctive raised profile that sits above the counter. MODEX features a generous amount of work space thanks to its design that allows for draining in two directions and a large integrated cutting board. One of the newest additions to the BLANCO SILGRANIT® II collection, this handsomely crafted modern sink embodies a high design standard with its extraordinary form and generous, flowing surfaces.
“It is a true honor for BLANCO’s CERANA and MODEX to be recognized internationally by the GOOD DESIGN Award jury,” states Tim Macher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “It is our third time winning the GOOD DESIGN Award and we are humbled by the fact that we were selected out of thousands of amazing products from 48 countries. This prestigious award certainly validates our determination and passion for creating high performance, high quality designs without compromise for beauty or the environment.”
Founded in 1950, The GOOD DESIGN Award is the oldest and most globally recognized design excellence program.
