Sink into the Future

    It has been 10 years since Blanco sink and faucet company introduced its last creation, an under-mount kitchen sink that was considered a breakthrough in stainless-steel sink design. After years of exhaustive research, Blanco is now releasing its new category of kitchen sinks, the Microedge, which creates the illusion of a flush-mount installation but can be installed over virtually any counter material. Made with 18-gauge stainless steel, the Microedge is offered in nine different models, enhanced with geometric shapes and “zero-radius corners,” Blanco’s signature innovation that allows less water to collect in the corners of the sink. Each Microedge sink also features a sound-dampening pad that reduces the overall noise as water from the faucet hits the bottom of the basin, meant to maintain the longevity of the sink and the surrounding area. Microedge sinks start at $1,935. (www.blancoamerica.com)
