Sponsored by Franke

The kitchen is the heart of every home and is a place to express a very personal style.


products, including sinks, faucets, point-of-use, and soap dispensers, are among the most visible elements in a kitchen.

Franke’s newest sink family, the Planar 8, with its easy-to-clean 8mm radius corners provides the ultimate in contemporary urban looks with its exceptional width. Not only do the clean, sharp lines make a bold design statement, they also result in a sink that is very practical.

Designed and hand-fabricated in Italy, the Planar 8 Kitchen Sink Series is made from premium, Grade 304, 18-gauge stainless steel, equipped with sound-dampening pads and Franke’s silky luster finish. Other features include:

  • Maximized work space:

    These undermount sinks measure 17 inches from front to back to enhance countertop work space without compromising sink functionality.

  • Maximized storage space:

    The drain is placed in the rear of the unit so that drainage piping does not crowd the space inside the cabinet beneath the sink.

  • Easier cleaning:

    Unlike the zero-degree radius corners of other hand-fabricated kitchen sinks, the new Planar 8 is handcrafted with a tight, 8mm radius with minimally curved corner makes this new product much easier to keep clean.

  • Enhanced functionality:

    Custom accessories, such as a bottom grid and a cutting board, are available to create a more productive and enjoyable food-preparation experience.

With the spring covered hose, the Planar 8 Flex Faucet from Franke is designed to let you feel free and have fun in the kitchen. Whether it’s washing up pans, filling up a pot for pasta, or just standing back and admiring, this faucet is the perfect balance of performance and design. Finishing your kitchen with the complete Franke system will be the perfect union of form, function and durability without compromising style.
