Corian® Design, in its largest launch to date, recently revealed 15 gorgeous new colors of Corian solid surface for both interior and architectural applications. With aesthetics inspired by nature, these collections more than stimulate imaginative, artistic new design ideas. The 15 new colors of Corian® solid surface are members of five new collections: Aggregate, Terrazzo, Linear, Nuwood, and Onyx, along with two new Solid colors. With these collections, Corian® Design has introduced a vibrant and trendy palette for consumers, designers and architects to re-imagine spaces that express their own design tastes. 

In keeping with the Corian® Design “Make Your Space™” innovative direction, the vision of these new aesthetics comes from a diverse range of areas–from the beauty of a forest to mid-century modern design to translucent stone to industrial decor. Let’s take a deeper look into these striking collections.

The AGGREGATE Collection

The Aggregate is a collection of four colors embodying an industrial aesthetic with a look that is modern, yet enduring. It was created to complement the colors of Corian® solid surface in the Concrete line. The four new colors within this collection are: quiet Neutral Aggregate, light gray Ash Aggregate, toned taupe Weathered Aggregate and near-black Carbon Aggregate.

Corian® Represents Solid Surface at Super Bowl 2016

Corian® Solid Surface

Featuring 11 unique gallery and exhibit spaces, the 49ers Museum presented by Sony is a 20,000 sq. ft. facility dedicated to the 49ers past, present and future.

The curved, seamless walls of the new Levi’s® Stadium Museum in Santa Clara, CA, create a clean, uniform look that highlights why DuPont™ Corian® is the obvious choice for designers who want to make a bold statement with a durable solid surface.

The museum’s tall, translucent Corian® panels help capture the feeling and energy of the 49ers’ images projected on them. But they also are durable, which is necessary for an area with high volumes of visitor traffic.

“It is not surprising that Corian® would be featured so prominently in the Levi’s® Stadium Museum,” said John Richard, Global Business Director for DuPont Surfaces. “This type of impressive, large-scale design lends itself to Corian® both because of the surface’s aesthetic beauty and the ability to form it into virtually any shape or design.” Continue reading
