An open-plan kitchen can provide the functional and aesthetic flourish needed in putting the finishing touch on an interior design. Stylish, modern, and practical, opening up the kitchen to serve as a public and accessible part of the home is a wonderful idea for a contemporary designer home. But in the face of this new trend, it’s important to not forget the kitchen’s purpose as a functional and work heavy area.

Designed by hansgrohe’s long-standing renowned design partner, Phoenix Design, the new SilicaTec granite range of kitchen sinks is the perfect anchor piece for modern open-plan kitchens. Composed of quartz particles (the hardest constituent of granite) and acrylic resins, the result is a smooth finish that’s non-porous, easy to clean, and heat-, stain- and impact resistant. From red wine stains to coffee, tea, and even hot pots and pans, no trace will be left on the robust composite quartz sinks; keeping them attractive and functional for decades to come, even in the most hectic of kitchens.

Furthermore, the distinctive broad rim surface showcases the beauty of the SilicaTec material and offers more room for additional features. This wider rim also serves as the connecting element for the two-hole mixer used in the innovative hansgrohe dual sink combination units. To top it off, the overflow is positioned on the right side of the bowl, keeping it hidden from view.

hansgrohe’s new composite quartz sinks range serves as a reminder that while we are embracing the charm of open-plan kitchen design, the sturdiness and functionality of a well-designed sink can never be ignored.
