Tradition meets modern

The ceramic sink: good design never goes out of style

In the modern kitchen setting, Villeroy & Boch has helped the ceramic sink to a successful comeback. Its timeless form, propagating simplicity as it eliminates the superfluous, makes the ceramic sink the ideal candidate for modern eat-in and country-style kitchens.

When it was rediscovered, the designers at the company in Mettlach subjected the ceramic sink to an unobtrusive revision, adapting it to the dimensions of modern kitchens while equipping it with new, functional elements. The edges are now considerably more filigree and thinner. And yet it has not lost any of its original charm in the bargain. Unlike built-in sinks, the ceramic sink is made to be noticed. Its distinctive trademark – aside from the generously proportioned basin – is its straight front. Thanks to it, the ceramic sink plays a quite prominent visual role, one that makes it predestined for individualistic kitchen design.

The ceramic sink is available as a generous single-basin sink or in a functionally equipped double-basin model. With its striking design, it makes a clear statement in any kitchen. The same holds true for the choice of colors: in clear white, it is clean and original. The ceramic sink is also offered in all of the other Villeroy & Boch ceramic colors. Colors can be chosen to make the ceramic sink create vivid contrasts - or harmonious combinations.

Added to the appealing appearance is the tried and tested functionality. Baking sheets can be washed without difficulty and large pots easily filled in the large basin. This makes the ceramic sink, a timelessly beautiful character piece, optimally well-prepared for everyday life in the kitchens of today.

The new ceramic sink by Villeroy & Boch is available beginning in the 3rd quarter 2012.
