US Fabricator R.D. Wing Co., Inc. used the technique of dye sublimation in Corian® for the wall panels and patient room cabinet doors at The Lunder Building of Massachusetts General Hospital.
Sublimation is a technique where images are effectively transferred into a heated sheet of Corian® - almost like a human tattoo - leaving a permanent image within the surface of the material. The printed Corian® solid surface can then be fabricated and thermoformed as normal.
R.D. Wing took the design of NBBJ Architects, New York, NY and Seattle, WA and brought it to life cladding the internal corridor walls with Corian® sublimated with subtle leaf images that mirror the plant life immediately outside the Lunder Building.
Sublimated Corian® was also used for cabinet doors and casework outside each patient room to continue the theme throughout the hospital building.
Take a look at some more photos of this extraordinary project which showcases both the creative possibilities with Corian® as well as its hygienic properties which make it the go to product for the healthcare environment.
