STRATEGY
COOKING LIKE A PROFESSIONAL

The sink transfers interesting features from the world of professional cooking to the private kitchen. Based on the internationally recognised Gastronorm system, the sink incorporates different containers and perfectly fitting chopping boards that allow the user to work flexibly and efficiently at several levels. That simplifies handling and makes preparing food more fun.

INNOVATION
PREPARATION AT TWO LEVELS

Because the sink conforms to Gastronorm standards, it becomes the multifunctional focal point of the kitchen. Thanks to their standardised dimensions, the containers sit perfectly in the patented rim halfway down the basin, which gives rise to a practical second level. What’s more, besides serving as practical containers or strainers, the standardised receptacles can also be used to store food in the refrigerator or cook it in the steam oven – thus saving the cook the effort of transferring it to different containers.

DESIGN
AESTHETIC MATERIALS MEET FUNCTIONALITY

Besides reflecting professional levels of functionality, the sink also echoes the professional aesthetic with its objective, understated design language. The timelessness of the design is underlined by the durable, top-quality materials used for the sink and matching containers: the same drawn stainless steel favoured by the catering industry. The perfect finish of the stainless steel symbolises the high quality standards of the design and blends in perfectly with contemporary kitchen appliances. Made of warm beech, the matching chopping board adds suspenseful contrasting accents.
