Dialogue on Design: Shape the Future Event

Come join DuPont Surfaces and Metropolis Magazine at the Philadelphia DuPont™ Corian® Design Studio to celebrate with the winners of the Metropolis/DuPont ‘Shape the Future’ Design Competition. 

Designers and judges will discuss the innovative thinking behind the submitted design concepts, and celebrate the design versatility of DuPont™ Corian® solid surface.

Design professionals were asked to unleash their creativity with design concepts that would transform the familiar 20th century material into the 21st century. All concepts were considered, including tech-age environments, functional structures, art, furniture and objects. Various settings and surroundings were examined: commercial spaces like healthcare, workplaces, education, retail, hotels, restaurants, transportation, institutional and cultural, as well as residential.

Judging took place in August, with the winners being announced this Fall. This event will allow you the opportunity to hear the inspiration behind the winning entries, and to learn how boundaries can be pushed in design using this time-tested material.

        Date: Thursday, October 16th
        Time: 5-8 PM
        Location: Corian® Design Studio
       
Address: 2400 Market St., Suite 403, Philadelphia, PA 19103
