Hundreds of local and overseas designers gathered at the Corian® Design Studio, which serves as the platform for them to share unlimited design ideas and experiences. The party also unveiled the conceptual Corian® motor bike, a new collection added by the British-born Hong Kong-based designer Michael Young that fully demonstrated the synergy of the versatility of Corian® plus state-of-the-art computer technologies. Leveraging on Michael Young, the Creative Director of Corian® Design Studio Shanghai, being appointed as the Creative Director of 100% Design Shanghai, the conceptual Corian® motorbike has been exhibited at the 100% Design Shanghai from November 4-6 at the Shanghai Exhibition Center, which would be exhibited at the Corian® Design Studio afterwards.

The future designers were eager to mingle with Michael Young.

MY Corian® Party was swarmed with local and overseas designer. Designer Ben McCarthy from Michael Young Ltd. sang his own songs to entertain the guests.

“Our presence at the 100% Design Shanghai and the hosting of MY Corian® Party have demonstrated our continuous effort in positioning Corian® as the design material. We hope the Corian® Design Studio Shanghai serves as the platform for designers to get inspirations and exchange ideas, and further strengthens Corian® in the commercial segment,” commented Michael Ho, the Regional General Manager of DuPont™ Corian® in Greater China. “The active ideas exchanges of the guests during the MY Corian® Party has successfully proved how the Corian® Design Studio can contribute to the designer community."

Renowned British designer Michael Young designed a motor bike made of Corian® especially for this event. “With the 100% Design Shanghai, the leading networking platform for contemporary and innovative interior design products in China, being held in Shanghai, this is also a golden opportunity to draw visitors to the Corian® Design Studio Shanghai, which was opened in August this year. Corian® as a designers’ material enabled me to make use of state-of-the-art computer technology to materialize my design ideas into real exhibits.”
