Invented by DuPont scientists, DuPont™ Corian® is used in a wide range of residential, commercial, furniture and specialty applications. It is a non-porous solid surface material that is stain-resistant, easy to clean, durable, renewable, repairable and even recyclable. Available in over 100 standard colours (including the new, highly translucent Ice White), Corian® can be shaped into virtually any conceivable design.

Over the past decade, designers have consistently pushed forward the boundaries of what can be achieved with Corian® by exploiting its special characteristics. These include its ability to be cut, carved or sandblasted; its easy formability using thermoforming or other techniques; its seamless look; its translucency and its silk-like touch. Underpinning the work of designers, DuPont research & development teams are continually developing new technology to expand the creative potential and the applications of Corian®.

“Corian® Nouvel Lumières” project conceived by Jean Nouvel incorporates the most significant innovations and technologically-advanced processes introduced by DuPont for Corian® solid surfaces, proposing a multisensorial interior environment elegantly marked by new lighting and electronic solutions embedded into Corian®. With its elegance and its genial demonstrations of the qualities and the possibilities of Corian®, the exhibit takes to a new dimension the design evolution of Corian® solid surface.
