Approaching the design from the perspective of the consumer, AME devised the Echo range of stainless steel sinks for market-leading kitchen sink, tap and accessory manufacturer Astracast (part of the Jacuzzi group).

The design features and accessories of the new range of sinks were realised through conducting a detailed analysis into changing trends within the home, and the subsequent impact it places on the kitchen environment.

The resulting Echo range encompasses the Echo 1.0 bowl and 1.5 bowl sinks, bringing together spacious bowls with drainer facilities that quickly and effectively disperse liquids. A unique Aquature® overflow drainage area is recessed to prevent surface run off and with the off-centre taps, serves to maximise the food preparation area. These combined features serve to create an engaging user-experience and efficient kitchen environment.

To complement the stainless steel sinks, a range of premium accessories were also created to complete the Echo range. The accessory packs include a bowl grid, chopping board, and colander complete with holder. The final design solution adopted a systems based approach to the brief with consumer lifestyles central to the process.

 “AME provided Astracast with a number of fresh concept designs for a family of new steel sink products. Their understanding of consumer needs and ability to understand our design problem, whilst providing a stylish and practical solution was our motivation for working with them”. - Astracast, Design & Innovation Manager
