Corian Super-surfaces launched during Salone Internazionale del Mobile Milan

More than just an expression of the material, the surface transformations push the technical possibilities of DuPont™ Corian® by exploiting its pliability and using the twisted geometry of the sheets to bring structural integrity. Advanced digital technology was used as part of the process for generating the design as well as for the fabrication of the installation. The lighting is designed to emphasise both the voids and the visual movement of the piece.

The lounge is a loosely defined architectural concept about a space that is animated by the movement of people in transit. A drop of water creating a series of ripples became our  metaphor for transforming space through movement. Just as the ripple causes intricate moiré patterns in water, the Corian lounge installation is about revealing the moment of change through visual complexity. With the repetition of identical elements that have been physically transformed, a frozen moment is captured through a sequence of dynamic surfaces creating kinetic visual effects.

Amanda levete architects: ‘CORIAN® super-surfaces’ at milan design week 09

‘Corian® super-surfaces’ is the name of the exhibition that DuPont™ Corian®
and amanda levete architects (ALA) will create for the upcoming
milan design week in april 2009.

what will be displayed is the lounge environment re-defined: a conceptual
interpretation of the lounge as a dynamic space of transition between neutral
and active states, ‘Corian® super-surfaces’ is a frozen moment within a dynamic
sequence of transformations which morph DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces into
a fluid and elastic collection of integrated kitchen, bathroom and flooring concepts
highlighted by a feature wall conceived by ALA and materialised with
DuPont™ Corian®.

carefully crafted by the design vision of ALA, this sculptural interpretation of
the lounge environment showcases the amazing material performance of DuPont™
Corian® and highlights its inherent ability to modify perceptions of space and form.
through a combination of advanced digital design technologies, innovative fabrication
techniques, and fascinating lighting effects, ALA will reveal the ‘super-surfaces’ nature
of DuPont™ Corian®.

a publication will be launched soon detailing ‘Corian® super-surfaces’.
