SCHOCK is Punk
When the “Godfather of Punk” tells the story of the sustainable kitchen sink in a fairy tale reimagining of the Bavarian Forest, only one company can be behind it: SCHOCK, the inventors of the quartz composite sink, who have found the perfect face for their latest marketing campaign in the form of Iggy Pop.
SCHOCK now produces sinks using over 99% natural, renewable or recycled raw materials. The premium kitchen installations are produced in Germany – handmade and with great attention to detail. From 2021, the KALLIO model is available from dealers in intense graphite black or pure white.
Sustainability is an integral part of SCHOCK’s DNA: “No one can opt out of this world,” noted the then Managing Director Friedrich Schock back in 1995. The current management team also share this conviction, and they live it. “We are innovation leaders in the quartz composite market. Shaping the future has always been our speciality,” says Ralf Boberg, SCHOCK’s CEO. The company’s strategic focus, SINK GREEN, accelerates its path towards a sustainable future, because the inventors of quartz composite sinks have set themselves a demanding agenda.
SCHOCK Presents World First:
Standing still is an unknown concept to the inventors of the quartz composite sink from Regen, Germany. In their in-house R&D lab there’s an innovative team working continually on optimising their high-grade products. And the team did it again: they created a world first in the form of CRISTADUR® Green Line, the most sustainable quartz composite sinks from SCHOCK. With this evolution, the innovation leader gives dealers the option to position themselves and offers end customers a product line that is consistent with the movement towards conscious consumption and greater consideration of the way every individual’s actions shape the future. The innovative material’s development marks a rigorous continuation of the sustainability drive pursued by the Bavarian company, which has always produced its quartz composite sinks in harmony with nature and the local region: SCHOCK is the only quartz composite sink manufacturer to produce exclusively in Germany, naturally using quartz sand from the local region.
SCHOCK at area30 2019
Two anniversaries shape SCHOCK’s presence at this year’s area30: it was 95 years ago that the innovative company was founded and 40 years ago that SCHOCK invented the quartz composite sink – heralding a golden age for sink design. And gold will be making a visible statement at SCHOCK’s booth in this anniversary year.
