Designing with DuPont™ Corian® - the latest from around the world, part 12

Designing with DuPont™ Corian® - the latest from around the world, part 12

When I first saw this it was music to my ears and I had to share how the intricacies of Corian® are shown off to good effect inlaid on this guitar headstock. Developed by Scott Walker Custom Guitars all the way from Santa Cruz, California,Corian® really is ‘Rockin all over the world’.

AlessioBassan Corian® Tabletop Lamp


Another highlight of Corian®’s qualities


This striking tabletop lamp by AlessioBassan is rather unusual while eye-catching all the same. Both the illuminated circular design and handy tray are fabricated from Corian®. Available in 47 of the colours there is a good chance of matching colour schemes. AlessioBassan is a self-taught industrial, graphic and interior designer in Thiene, Italy.


Jamie Mansfield Corain® Kitchen Utensils


Well-handled project


Furniture and product design student Jamie Mansfield cooks up a treat with these kitchen utensils named the Cena Collection. Consisting of only two components, the utensils are of a simplistic, Scandinavian styling; primarily a wooden tool machined from maple with a thermoformed Corian® handle. The idea behind his design was to use the offcuts from Corian® kitchen installations which are often thrown away and wasted, therefore any Corian® colour could be used. I’m sure Jamie will have a great design career ahead of him, good luck with the rest of the course, tops marks from me!


Paul Flowers Corian® Furniture


The changeable bathroom


Although Corian® is widely known as a material for the bathroom here the designer approaches the furniture much differently. Paul Flowers favours homelike, flexible, individual pieces of furniture, separated from the walls. The pieces are freestanding, can be easily moved and enable individuality. Every piece can create its own little island of comfort and well-being, adapts to changing circumstances and new layouts. If only he had done a toilet, I could have got in a portaloo quip!


As usual if you know of any interesting or unusual places where Corian® has been used please get in touch with me at this address sarah@cdukltd.co.uk we would love to hear from you.
