Corian® DuPont Services Center India
First impression is critical! This, in deed, also applies to office buildings and shops. The first time someone visit a company, it takes them only three seconds to determine whether they like it or want to do business with the company in the future. Bearing this in mind, the project owner of DuPont Service Center wish to combine the two very different elements technology and warm through the design of office impact space. The reception area of DuPont Service Center in India, originally designed with stainless steel as main material, make use of Corian® in visual impact spaces including wall cladding, table top, reception desk and planters.
Although designers only had 1 month before lobby installation, Rapid Corp Architect insisted to redesign the impact space from stainless steel to Corian®. Corian® solid surface is specifically chosen over other materials because only Corian® can fulfill the utmost requirement in physical performance such as thermoforming ability, hygiene and seamless joint without sacrificing the warm and welcoming atmosphere. Corian® Hot is combined with Corian® Glacier White to form high contrast pattern on the main feature wall; reception desk made by Corian® Glacier White joins the flow line from wall clad forming a unified space that preserves the key tone “warm and welcoming” while emphasizing the company’s root of “technology and innovation”. The design completely redefined reception space into a company icon that attracts people to stay.
