Everything Design and the Kitchen Sink

One of the many incredible destinations of the London Design Fair in September 2012 was 100% Design.  Along with 13 other design bloggers from around the globe, I was honored to attend this design venue to view and appreciate the talent and creativity of so many new and emerging designers. This trip was made possible in part by Blanco, a sponsor of Blog Tour by Modenus.  A manufacturer of high quality sinks, faucets and accessories, which are themselves a depiction of 100% design, Blanco is a company you may already be familiar with.  Visit their website for more in-depth information about their products shown below.

100% Design

100% Design 2012, the UK’s leading and most visited contemporary design event is in its 18th year. It was set to be the most successful year ever staged. Last years event attracted over 18,000 visitors and this year with over 25,000 visitors, is officially the UK’s biggest design trade event.

 Mercedes-Benz greeted us with their new Concept Style Coupé, one of my favorite displays!

 

100% Design was simply that. Showcasing the breathtaking design of The Mercedes-Benz Model above, was great marketing. They even chauffeured us around in a Mercedes-Benz.

Above are just a few of the very inventive designs spotted at 100% Design. I really liked the concrete wall tiles in the center. Would be wonderful for an office or commercial application.

Blanco is all about 100% Design in addition to 100% quality~

“Family owned since 1925, BLANCO’s humble beginnings included making copper galvanized parts for cookers and hot water bottles with a team of 30 loyal employees. Today, our company has produced more than 40 million sinks, and is recognized as a world leader in quality, innovation and unsurpassed service.
Long gone are the times when a sink was merely used for function. These days, it can be the muse for a kitchen – or perhaps an entire home. Because of our dedication to quality, we ensure that every sink is inspected multiple times before earning the BLANCO name. It’s just a part of our commitment to our craft and our customers.”

 Let’s start with the Flow sink.

“More than a sink – it’s an architectural element.With revolutionary MicroEdge™ technology, our award-winning BLANCO FLOW features gleaming stainless steel that blends seamlessly with the countertop, creating the illusion of flushmounted installation. Only from the artisans at BLANCO STEELART®.
