CD UK stands out at Surface Design Show

CD UK stands out at Surface Design Show

We were delighted with the response that we got from visitors to our stand at the Surface Design Show at the Business Design Centre in Islington from 5-7 February.

Lighting up the show

With a prominent stand that visitors could see on entering the exhibition, they were drawn to the 3 metre high wall of textured and back lit panels on display.

2 different designs were on show to highlight the way in which the translucent properties of Corian® can be used to great effect. These patterns have been used previously on actual commercial installations and drew visitors into considering Corian® for us as feature panels in a way they may not have done previously.

Take a look at some more uses of backlit Corian®.

One of the panels achieved a much brighter effect by using Glacier Ice that was routered out on the back of the panel and then lit with standard LEDs. The other had a more subtle lighted feel and used normal Glacier White Corian®.

It feels great as well!

We were also displaying 2 different textured panels which visitors couldn't keep their hands off.....

Members of the design community were inspired into seeing such Corian® panels being used in hotel and office lobbies for example.

Texture is easily created in Corian® with the use of a CNC router. See some more great examples by clicking here The perfect material for rainscreen cladding

With a whole section of wall showing off Corian® rainscreen cladding visitors were able to start to understand the benefit of using Corian® in this way.

A thermoformed corner section provided insight into the unique ways in which designers can use Corian® to clad a building in ways that cannot be achieved with other products.

A scale model of the Seek'O Hotel in Bordeaux which was clad in Glacier White Corian® provided an eye-catching centre-piece for visitors to see that contemporary buildings are ideally suited to using Corian® rainscreen façades.

The benefits of Corian® ThermoLine worktops

Last but not least for visitors to enjoy on the stand was the new Corian® ThermoLine worktop with integrated Corian® sink that sat on tops of cabinets finished off with Corian® doors in Pearl Grey.

ThermoLine is the revolutionary new worktop solution that allows customers to have a Corian® worktop with the benefits of an anti-drip front edge and a stunning 100mm coved upstand at significantly reduced costs compared to standard Corian® worktops.

Ideal for large-scale projects ThermoLine saves up to 70% of the normal time taken in fabrication and therefore reduces both costs on a job but also the speeds up the process for installing the worktops on a project.
