RCA Winner: Franke
Franke’s Chef Center is an entirely new sink system concept that transforms the traditional sink into a hub for operating and entertaining in the heart of the home. It will be available to consumers in August 2016.
Franke’s Chef Center system features two versatile, removable, anti-microbial compartments that can serve as a composter, wine bucket, storage bin, or any other purpose imaginable. Adding to its all-in-one appeal, the Chef Center also comes with an array of custom accessories, including a cutting board, colander, grid, mobile drainer board, push button remote controlled operated strainer basket and Franke’s exclusive Roller Mat.
Thoughtfully designed and engineered in Switzerland, the Chef Center’s wide basin accommodates large pots and pans easily, and the sink reveal allows the custom accessories to lay flat on the sink ledge and slide easily from side to side. Handcrafted from premium-quality 18-gauge stainless steel, the Chef Center also features superior sound absorption to significantly reduce disposal and dishwashing noise.
Exceedingly attractive. Exceptionally crafted in 16 gauge stainless steel. The perfect harmonization of minimalist style and maximum performance makes the Peak sink truly innovative. Each element is fashioned to excel in both form and function to create complete design symmetry. Aesthetically pleasing and remarkably functional, the Peak sink collection brings unparalleled style and utility to any kitchen.
A granite sink by Franke is not only scratch-resistant and easy to clean, but also wonderfully designed. The Orca granite undermount sink provides exceptional workability, and the Franke integral ledge raises the work surface to a comfortable height.
The new Cube family of handcrafted undermount sinks combines Swiss engineering with sleek, minimalist design. Available in single- and double-bowl styles, the sinks feature a smooth bowl design with a clean look, an easy-to-clean satin finish and sound dampening pads.
