Livable Design

BLANCO defines livable design as transitional in feel – but with organic lines that are naturally inspired and offer durability and easy-to-clean performance. It’s not enough to walk the line between traditional and modern… today’s styles must also be performance driven – they need to save water, last longer, be easy-to-use and easy-to-clean. They also need to offer organic lines – gently sloping and easy to match with today’s surfaces, cabinetry and flooring. Even modern cabinetry is reliant on nature’s palettes and textures so the fixtures must match.

  2. LOVE the “Liveable Design” concept as a title..brilliant!

    Question 3: Ergonomics for my target market, the 78 million Baby Boomers is essential but truly, why is not appropriate for all ages? Example: Who can safely reach the top shelf of 42″ upper cabinets?
