Future-proof the kitchen with black fittings

Elevate the water hub to a key interior design feature with BLANCO’s Black Edition of sinks, mixer taps and accessories.

Future-proof the kitchen with black fittings

Perfectionists and design aficionados will love the Black Edition, as all of the visible functional elements (pop-up, C-overflow and InFino drain system) come in the same black. It’s particularly practical for planners, too, as all of these elements are included in the scope of supply, so they don’t need to be ordered separately.

When done correctly, black accents in the interior always look sophisticated and expensive – and never go out of style. There’s a good reason why it’s commonly used in luxury hotels and residences. This trend for darker shades has extended beyond walls, furniture, appliances and worktops to now also include other kitchen accessories. A case in point is BLANCO’s range of sink, mixer tap, soap dispenser, and waste and overflow set in matt black versions.

With BLANCO’s Black Edition fittings, it’s now easier than ever to achieve a monochrome colour-matched design for the water hub. When combined with the matching components, the Subline and Etagon sinks in Black Edition transforms the most used space in the kitchen into a statement in black.

Distinguished by its elegant, straight-lined geometry, the Subline 500-U almost vanishes into the undermount for a minimalist outlook. Meanwhile, the staggered bowl of the Etagon 6 makes room for additional kitchen tasks with the aid of versatile rails.

More importantly, the bowls made of Silgranit® – a durable granite composite material with a stone-like surface – are very low maintenance as well as heat-, stain- and scratch-resistant. Similarly, the new waste and overflow set in black matt is especially scratch-resistant for better peace of mind.

For sinks that have already been installed, it’s still possible to be retrofitted with the Black Edition waste and overflow set. Whether you prefer to create vivid contrasts or a streamlined look in combination with stainless steel or Silgranit® sinks, the choice is yours.


To achieve striking contrasts, the waste and overflow set in black matt can be combined with a coloured Silgranit® sink in the modern concrete style.


Combining the BLANCO ZEROX DarkSteel with the black matt waste and overflow set creates a particularly sophisticated look.
