ARCON redefines the timeless arc, offering a sophisticated execution that balances curves and seamless lines with uncompromised precision.
BLANCO STEELART® introduces ARCON™
LUMBERTON, NJ, May 2009 – BLANCO, innovator of quality engineered stainless steel since 1925, introduces the new ARCON sink to its STEELART brand collection. The flowing arc is a timeless style that balances strong design lines with a soft, sophisticated touch. ARCON draws the eye with a magnetic attraction of opposites – a zero radius edge against a smooth, seamless curve. Pleasing to behold, ARCON offers designers the flexibility to echo, to integrate and to soothe within any décor.
“Throughout history, the arc emerges as a symbol of spirit, pride and of great technological accomplishment,” states Tim Maicher, Director of Marketing for BLANCO. “ARCON is our newest addition to the STEELART portfolio, and it represents the superior craftsmanship and uncompromised quality that only BLANCO STEELART can deliver. It takes over 30 artisans to transform a single sheet of premium steel into one seamless, polished ARCON sink.”
ARCON is available in six designer-friendly models that includes a super single, 1-3/4 bowl and double bowl that will fit both custom and standard cabinet sizes. The retail price for an ARCON sink starts at $1,275 to $2,168.
