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 faÃ§ades.
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.
