The Fresh Light of Corian®

Light is immaterial but is transformed by materials. The art of transforming light through the creative combination of materials, of innovative shapes, of never-tried-before design solutions, has reached a new frontier in recent years. A frontier breached by a material that offers designers superior modeling possibilities as well as unique aesthetic, tactile and sensorial qualities and a special capability to interpret light. This material is DuPont™ Corian® techno-surface, known and used worldwide by creative professionals and companies from a wide variety of cultures in an extensive and almost unlimited range of applications.

Now, during the 2011 Milan week of design, DuPont celebrates the ability of DuPont™ Corian® to provide a fresh innovative input to lighting design, in an exhibition presenting a variety of imaginative lighting objects. These objects are conceived by creative professionals from countries that are increasingly demonstrating their capability of offering new contributions to the worldwide design arena. The exhibition, “The Fresh Light of Corian®”, will take place from April 12 to 17 at the “DuPont™ Corian® Design Studio Milano”, via Melzo 7, Milano (opening hours H 10.00 to H 20.00).

«Since the late ’90s, DuPont™ Corian® has been presenting innovation at the Milan week of design, the most important design event in the world, where we have successfully collaborated many times with a large number of creatives based in Western Europe. For the past few years DuPont™ Corian® has been significantly growing in countries such as Croatia, Czech Republic, Poland, Romania, Serbia, and Slovenia, that are gaining momentum in the furnishing and building markets due to their different design cultures and traditions but also thanks to the talent of local architects and designers. “The Fresh Light of Corian®” exhibition is a recognition of these emerging design cultures, a way to provide exposure to creative professionals from these countries and thank them for the preference they are giving to DuPont™ Corian® for their projects. The collaboration in this project of companies from those countries specialised in the fabrication of DuPont™ Corian® is something that makes us very proud, it is a further demonstration of the capability of our material to meet the needs of a continuously growing and diversified number of markets» says Jean-Yves Bach, DuPont Building Innovations, Business Director, Europe Middle East and Africa.
