The Thales CASIA Innovation Laboratory showcased intriguing possibilities of Corian®
Melbourne based Carabott Holt Architects (CH Architects) showcased intriguing possibilities of Corian® in the Thales’s CASIA (Center for Advanced Studies in the Air Traffic Management) Innovation Laboratory. The laboratory is composed of a workspace, flexible training rooms and a gallery which shows the latest CASIA technology (highly advanced technology and services for air traffic management and defense logistics). With smooth curves and fluidity design, the three Corian® based sculptures resembles elements of aviation.
Corian® Glacier White is the material of choice for CH Architect to create a high-tech ambience. “It’s a perfect material! Being easy to fabricate, it pushed the boundaries of the form, and allowing us to create fluid curves and lines from every angle with seamless joints.” The smooth curves and fluidity symbolized the company’s expertise and ability to push the boundaries of technological excellence, as well as the linkage to aircraft and aviation. Every detail of the interior fit-out integrated well to maximize emotional impact. The durability and easy to clean features make Corian® an ideal material for daily use workspace countertop which correspond to the major part of the three sculptures.
