Form and function underpin new Ergo stainless steel sink from Carron Phoenix
Ergo is one of the several new products being unveiled by Carron Phoenix this week, as part of its bumper new product launch for 2011.
The contemporary styled Ergo 200 is positioned at the top end of Carron's sink offer, bringing together form and function in an elegantly designed inset sink model that will suit a range of worksurface materials.
Ergo's point of design differentiation comes from the two spacious bowls being set at a slight angle to one another, rather than conventionally side by side. This gives the user a more ergonomic style of working at the kitchen sink, by being able to switch tasks between the bowls by gently turning the upper torso to face each bowl without having to adjust the stance of the feet.
Ramping up the ergonomics further is an accessory pack that contains a bamboo chopping board, a wire strainer basket for drying dishes and a strainer tray for rinsing vegetables, all of which are interchangeable with each bowl and transforming Ergo into a top class workcentre sink that is ideal for large island units or compact kitchens alike due to its multi-functionality.
The Ergo 200 measures 833 x 500 x 200mm deep and fits into a 900mm cabinet. The main bowl measures 423 x 405 x 200mm, with the second bowl at 303 x 405 x 200mm. Ergo's simplicity of design is further complemented by the stylish flush fitting Revolution overflow.
Says Neil Clark, sales and marketing director at Carron Phoenix:
"Consumers understand ever more these days the value of ergonomics in the kitchen and how they can enhance the pleasure and user-friendliness of products. Ergo's skilful design combines a stylish look with a highly functional workcentre sink, delivering a sink that is a joy to look at and also to work with."
