Multiple studies have shown the importance of environment on productivity and well-being, from interior climate and air quality to light and visual stimulation. Corian® aligns with all such optimum conditions, while adding its distinctive tactile silkiness and an easy-care finish that can be kept pristine for the long term. Even if any unforeseen damage occurs, this homogenous and robust material is easily restored to full beauty, usually on site. These qualities make it not only a wise investment in terms of budget, but also for peace of mind.

Cleverly compatible with the demands of our digital age, Corian® lends itself to all kinds of technological integration. This ranges from smoothly encased touch screens to the discreetly embedded Corian® Charging Surface, which enables all manner of devices to be powered up wirelessly – directly on a desk surface, or a bespoke meeting table, kitchenette worktop or lobby coffee table.

The ability to customise Corian® Solid Surface according to a particular brand identity adds to its creative and commercial currency. This could mean sublimating a logo or a full photographic mural, engraving a discreet pattern or creating a 3D backlit wall sculpture to represent the company’s character. An extensive colour palette of over 100 carefully researched and exclusive hues allows designers to easily harmonise with the chromatic scheme of each project, but in sufficient quantity, custom colours to establish a unique identity are also possible.

From individual solutions to adaptable products from specialist suppliers, Corian® offers the perfect blend of style and hygiene for washrooms. Non-porous, stain-resistant and flexible enough to create installations from troughs to integral vanities and wall-cladding to integrated splashbacks, Corian® also teams up happily with the latest in tap and hand dryer technology. Thermoformable into all manner of curves and shapes, the material’s many talents can be put to both striking and ergonomic use.
