Corian Super-Surfaces

Corian® is a solid surface material with excellent long-term performance, used both in the home and in many different commercial environments, from hotels to healthcare, retail to marine. It can be carved, routed or worked like wood, moulded, thermoformed or inlayed, and lends itself to imaginative uses, innovative designs and enduring applications. It is a sheet material, and for this project AL_A wanted to be true to its inherent qualities – moving away from more typical Corian installations where the material is expressed as a monolithic solid. We have articulated Corian® as a collection of dynamic surfaces. 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.
