The main focus at the new Mancunian hospitality lounge at Manchester City FC’s Etihad stadium is the striking circular bar installation that shows the full versatility and elegance of DuPont™ Corian® high tech surface. This seamlessly curving feature provides a smooth, easy-care surface that will help to serve the club’s guests in style for a long time, was chosen in the pristine Antarctica colour choice from the wide palette for DuPont™ Corian®.
Designed by 20.20, the high-spec interior is a vibrant, contemporary space that was created to embody the proud culture of Manchester and the heritage of Manchester City FC, presenting graphic representations of the city's musical legacy and club anthems. The stunning 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."
DuPont ™ Corian® is renowned for adding sophisticated value to hospitality design schemes, offering innovative solutions, infinite versatility and proven reliability. Corian® is robust, non-porous and hygienic, adapting beautifully to any creative vision while resisting the pressures of high-traffic environments, although the surface can be renewed should any damage occur. DuPont™ Corian® has a lustrous finish, is silky to the touch and extremely easy to clean and maintain, adding value in terms of both aesthetics and functionality. The 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.
