Kitchen sink drama

Words:
Jan-Carlos Kucharek

Sinks finally look good with the Jaron XL 6 S-IF from Blanco

With phrases like ‘sink or swim’, ‘that sinking feeling’ or ‘sink estate’ in common usage, it’s no surprise the sink has had a bad rap. Low self-esteem issues in kitchens are manifested in lazily designed steel sinks or badly specified, trendy Belfast ones, whose bottoms fall achingly shy of the outstretched human hand. But now Germany’s Blanco has graced PIP’s inbox with a steel sink deserving of the narcissistic pleasure derived from its minimal, highly engineered reflective surfaces. The new Jaron XL 6 S-IF is flush-mounted and has a satin-polish and ‘CapFlow finish’, which apparently even enhances the look of stray water droplets. With a Blanco Linee-S mixer tap finishing the seamless, cast style, the gutter might at last be looking at the stars.
