BLANCO: Small Format, Big Capacity

The BLANCO SELECT Compact 60/2 for low installation depths

Kitchen cupboard space is at a premium. Waste management systems are often housed in the base cabinet beneath the sink, but here they often have to compete with other installations for space. Base cabinets can get very crowded in buildings with a decentralised hot water supply via a low-pressure boiler, or if flow heaters or filtering systems are installed.

Blanco has designed a new waste system for precisely such eventualities. In a reduced 320 mm model, the Select Compact 60/2 makes the perfect solution for low installation depths, and thus ideally suited to Blanco’s new smart mixer taps. Despite its compact dimensions, the new Select solution offers a generous receptacle volume: [READ MORE]

New BLANCO ARTAGO bowl line in Silgranit PuraDur

New mixer taps BLANCO CARENA/-S and BLANCO JURENA/-S

Up, up and away

Square or round? This is a matter of style preference, and it’s one that applies as much in the kitchen as anywhere else.
