DuPont™ Corian® strikes the right note at Manchester City FC's Mancunian Lounge

Centre stage in the new Mancunian hospitality lounge at Manchester City FC’s Etihad stadium is a striking circular bar installation that makes the most of the elegance and versatility of DuPont™ Corian® high tech surface. In the pristine Antarctica colour choice from the exclusive palette for DuPont™ Corian®, this seamlessly curving feature offers a smooth, easy-care surface that will serve the club’s guests in style for the long term.

Designed by 20.20, the high-spec interior is a vibrant, contemporary space created to embody the proud culture of Manchester and the heritage of Manchester City FC, featuring graphic representations of the city's musical legacy and club anthems. The central bar installation was built by fit-out specialists Freemont Ltd on a steel framework with a curved fascia of olive ash slats.

Freemont Director, Charles Roland comments, “The bar design needed a high-performance material that could cope with very fine tolerances while also being easy to maintain and durable. DuPont™ Corian® was the natural choice.”

Renowned for adding sophisticated value to hospitality design schemes, DuPont™ Corian® offers innovative solutions, endless versatility and proven reliability. Robust, non-porous and hygienic, the material adapts beautifully to any creative vision and resists the pressures of high-traffic environments, though the surface can also be renewed should any damage occur. DuPont™ Corian® is lustrous in finish, silky to the touch and very easy to clean and maintain, adding value both in terms of aesthetics and functionality. Material was supplied for the Mancunian Lounge project by CD (UK) Ltd, distributors of DuPont™ Corian® in the UK since 1979.


“We’re thrilled with the look and feel of the design 20.20 has created. Both The Chairman’s Club and The Mancunian have been meticulously designed to represent the aspects on which the club is formed, from a proud history, unique culture and loyal fan-base. Manchester City is a global brand, proud of its roots. We have taken these spaces onto another level, expressing the character of the club and creating an unrivalled experience,” says Justice Ellis, Marketing Manager of Manchester City Football Club.
