Global innovators Schock create hard-wearing, long-lasting sinkware to withstand the demands of the modern kitchen.
February 29th, 2012
There’s no doubting that Schock are innovators in their field. Having invented the granite sink over 30 years ago, they set the scene for a design revolution – approximately 75% of the almost 2 million granite sinks produced each year are now manufactured using the Schock method.
Schock manufactures its sinks exclusively in Germany – the only producer to do so.
Its hardwearing range of products combines 80% quartz with high grade acrylic for a hardened composite material that is resistant to cracks and dirt and lasts a lifetime.
Specifically developed to meet the demanding needs of a modern kitchen, Schock products are durable and tough. Stain and scratch-resistant, food safe, UV-stable and easy to clean – the high quartz content of Schock sinkware makes it impervious to all manner of damaging factors.
Shock also integrates the Schock Antibac® system into all its products. Natural silver ions reduce bacterial growth by 95%, making the kitchen environment safer and cleaner.
Combined with Schock’s CRISTADUR® Nanoclean-effect technology, it is virtually impossible for bacteria or dirt to stick to the material’s surface.
Schock sinkware is available in 2 sizes from Abey Australia.

“I’m interested in the invisibility of the design scripts that are hidden within objects we use every day that channel certain stereotypes,” says Central St Martins course leader Betti Marenko. Looking around there are plenty of design objects embedded with gender stereotypes – from the ubiquitous fail of Bic for Her pens to Nika Zupanc’s “feminine” gold chair for Moooi.
