I’m always fascinated by what’s new, particularly when it’s a kitchen sink.
And lately companies have been using videos to launch new concepts. The innovative German kitchen faucet manufacturer Dornbracht, and their design partner Michael Sieger, have been rethinking things in the kitchen via a pilot study centered on electronic kitchen sink functions. This concept sink has a push button panel for adjusting water temperature, dispensing dish soap and opening and closing the drain. Each of the tasks streamlined by an e-tool control panel and a well-placed, foot-operated light beam. There’s also a preset that will will automatically fill the sink and add soap — then turn itself off. Set it just right and the sink of the future will never overflow. I would love to have an electronic sink provided it responded quickly enough. I also would hope that the buttons for each function would be labeled. I would, however, not want a stationary faucet like this one — the spout needs to swing out of the way. Also, as a right handed person, it seems odd to have to cross my body to use a control panel located on the left. I would prefer to have that more conveniently located.
An electronic sink also would need its own backup battery with emergency power though I doubt anyone installing one would have that as a major concern. What’s nicest, though, is the size. This sink looks very large as well as convenient to use!
