The interplay between light and substance always intrigues those with a creative eye for architectural design.

There are many ways to explore the translucency of Corian®: You can experiment with levels and styles of luminosity in your designs, or create beautiful, atmospheric lighting and lamps. You can illuminate furniture or abstract shapes to add definition and drama, or even explore back-lighting options to reveal a carved design or sign. The possibilities are endless.

Invented by DuPont in 1967, Corian® is the original solid surface. DuPont Corian® is a solid, seamless, non-porous homogenous surfacing material made from natural minerals and acrylic resin.

Additional benefits of Corian® include:
•    Thermoformable
•    Inconspicuous joins
•    Repairable
•    Hygienic and non-porous
•    Contributes to Green Star credit points
•    NSF and GreenGuard certified
•    10-year warranty
