2017 marks the 50th anniversary of Corian®, the solid and non-porous high-tech surface material from science and engineering company DuPont™. A versatile, synthetic material, Corian® has gained international recognition and acclaim. Its application is found in numerous residential, public and commercial contexts and environments, including: kitchens, bathrooms, furniture, building facades, lighting, technology and healthcare.
A truly innovative material, Corian® has many notable qualities: it is hygienic and non-toxic, repairable and environmentally-friendly. From a design perspective, Corian® excels with its varied colours and textures, inconspicuous joints, translucency and pliability.
Celebrating its 50th anniversary in the world of architecture and design, Corian® has introduced three smart and distinctive surfaces: Concrete, Onyx and Prima. While they each have their own personality, the collective, aesthetic qualities of Concrete, Onyx and Prima embrace a number of characteristics, such as strength, warmth and texture. Developed to bring about a fresh dynamic, one that is modern and imbued with emotion, Concrete, Onyx and Prima offer a novel perspective on Corian®.
Available in four colours—Carbon, Ash, Weathered and Neutral—Corian® Concrete is inspired by the modern, urban landscape. With its understated pattern of fine particles, Concrete is both strong and noble in its appearance.
Available in two colours—Gray and White—Corian® Onyx is inspired by the classic, semi-precious variety of ornamental stone. With its rich, veiny texture, Onyx has a certain visual modernity and fluid aspect.
Available in eight colours—Limestone, Dune, Smoke Drift, Cosmos, Evening, Cocoa, Nimbus and Windswept—Corian® Prima was created to celebrate ‘on-trend’ design. With hues inspired by nature, Prima embodies and captures a range of poetic moods.
