We worked closely with Franke's in house development team, designing the new product and supplying them with SolidWorks 2D and 3D CAD information and sketch models that allowed them to tailor the designs to suit their production capabilities. Franke were overwhelmed by both retail trade and consumer response to the innovative new design.
After the success of our new kitchen sink concept, we were invited back again by Franke to rethink the field of domestic recycling. With a greater need to store empty cans, bottles and plastics in the kitchen before recycling, we developed an integrated kitchen unit that allows the householder to separate kitchen waste for easy, eco friendly recycling.
Based on a filing system with recyclable bags fitted to an injection moulded frame, the under counter, storage unit adjusts itself to the varying amounts of different types of waste generated by individual households, it also automatically opens the bags as the drawer is pulled out.
"The very fruitful cooperation between Goodwin and Franke has catapulted us back to the forefront of sink design" said Bruno Perucchi, Managing Director of Franke, "With Beach we have strengthened our reputation for innovation."
