Grey is experiencing a revival. According to Houzz’s Kitchen Study 2017, grey is one of this season’s key colours. Grey is classic, versatile and accentuating. In combination with pastel shades it exudes a sense of relaxation and purism. Teamed with loud colours it serves as a contrast and makes them shine even brighter. SCHOCK has recently made several new additions to the portfolio: sinks, mixer taps and accessories in various shades of grey that harmonise perfectly and bring a cool chic to the kitchen.

Shades of grey – Silverstone and Asphalt

Inspired by the latest fashion and interior design trends, SCHOCK has created new nuances on the colour spectrum. Elementary styles and pastel tones are everywhere today – including in the kitchen. Fitting in perfectly with these two design trends, SCHOCK demonstrates that sinks also look great in fashion-forward grey, with the addition of two new colours in its repertoire: Asphalt and Silverstone create a modern and urban look, just like the city’s streets. Asphalt is available in CRISTALITE® PLUS finish, while Silverstone was developed for premium CRISTADUR®.

No two greys are quite the same. SCHOCK showcases the colour’s versatility with another nuance on the grey scale: steel-grey. This shade can now be found gracing SCHOCK’s extended range of stainless steel taps. The popular Altos range has had two new models added: the Altos W is a below-window model with bayonet fitting, and the Altos S is a space-saving mixer tap that makes no sacrifice to convenience and design.


The same goes for the Conos Pro, a twin spout addition to the Conos range, which perfectly complements the innovative Prepstation sink concept by ergonomically extending the range of action in the wet zone. The matt stainless steel finish is not only a winner in terms of style but also comes with a number of practical benefits: the new mixer taps are easy to clean, scratch-proof and hygienic. Water marks are kept at bay, fingerprints have no chance.

Metallic anthracite – the Dion and Neilos in Gunmetal


Gunmetal brings a dark touch of luxury to the fashion-forward kitchen. Swathed in “Gunmetal” PVD coating, the premium Dion (with fixed spout) and Neilos designer mixer taps shine with an iridescent metallic anthracite look. In combination with one of SCHOCK’s designer ranges like the Waterfall and with trim in the exact same colour finish, customers can turn their entire sink area into a single stylish entity within their contemporary kitchen architecture.

Colour-coordinated trim


In the interests of achieving design perfection, SCHOCK offers customers the option of creating a single entity out of their sink and mixer tap by having the trim in the exact same material throughout. With selected sink models, solid stainless steel mixer taps can be teamed with overflow, basket strainer, drain cup and pop-up in the identical finish. The iridescent metallic anthracite look of the designer mixer taps can now be combined with PVD-coated trim in Gunmetal – creating a unified picture of cool elegance in fashion-forward grey.
