[USPRwire, Fri Feb 12 2010] BLANCO MicroEdge received a prestigious honorable mention in the 2009 K+BB Product Innovator Award announced earlier this month. MicroEdge was among only 9 other products to receive this recognition as a “stand out” for 2009.
A panel of esteemed kitchen and bath designers carefully evaluated and passionately discussed all entries. Those that made the final list distinguished themselves based on four criteria: originality, aesthetics, functionality and consumer appeal. Mark Brady, owner of Mark Brady Kitchens and a panelist commented, “This sink is just beautiful!” He referred to MicroEdge as a “perfect solution” to solving retrofit situations.
"This is a proud moment for BLANCO," states Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. "To be recognized by the design community in conjunction with K+BB is a tremendous honor. The field of entries was extremely competitive and we are grateful for this mark of distinction and extraordinary compliment,” He adds.
MicroEdge sink is the first breakthrough in stainless steel sink design since the introduction of the undermount sink more than 10 years ago. MicroEdge is a sleek overmount sink technology that creates the illusion of an expensive flushmount installation. Designers and homeowners can now achieve the highly coveted flush look for less time and money as MicroEdge can be installed over virtually any counter material. MicroEdge’s unique ultra-fine (1.25 mm) rim gives this sink its near seamless edge – a precision finish so demanding, only BLANCO could make it a reality. The MicroEdge top-mounted sinks can be positioned easily and secured with mounting clips or alternatively, can be installed as a traditional flushmounted sink by an experienced solid surface specialist.
For three generations, BLANCO has quietly and passionately elevated the standards for luxury sinks, faucets and decorative accessories. Proud of its European heritage and award-winning German engineering, BLANCO is steadfastly committed to their tradition of high quality, innovative design and unsurpassed service since 1925. Today, BLANCO is the only supplier in the world to produce its own sinks from start to finish in three materials. Dedicated to quality without compromise, every sink is closely inspected many times before it receives the BLANCO name.
A remarkable history of firsts emphasizes BLANCO’s zeal for innovation including the first stainless steel sink to achieve a 10mm radius –STEELART® – the first to market colored hard composite sinks – and BLANCO’s pioneering MicroEdge™ technology with its virtual flushmount edge.
BLANCO has a long tradition of environmental stewardship and their production facilities operate to strict DIN EN ISO 14001 environmental performance standards.
