Interior design at Metropolitan Hospital using DuPont™ Corian® solid surface for a code-compliant healthcare atmosphere that is easy to clean and maintain without feeling sterile and cold

ISSUES

  • Designing a hospital wing with distinguishing visual elements, helping it to establish its own personality within the hospital
  • Creating a warm, inviting environment that would put patients at ease
  • Using durable, flexible materials that could be used in multiple healthcare applications

CHALLENGES

  • Designing an inviting environment that would look fresh and clean without feeling sterile and cold
  • Creating an ADA code-compliant healthcare atmosphere—with no sharp corners and edges—that was easy to clean and maintain
  • Seeking out materials that offered optimal cleaning properties for a healthcare environment

SOLUTIONS

  • DuPont™ Corian® solid surface versatility encouraged use in everything from reception desks to scratch-resistant walls to examination room vanities to picture frames
  • Using a variety of Corian® colors helped to create a warm, calming and positive environment
  • The nonporous, virtually seamless qualities of Corian® prohibit bacterial growth on or beneath the surface

BENEFITS

  • The technology behind Corian® assures excellent renewability. Inevitable scratches and stains could be removed easily by the maintenance staff
  • Colors of Corian® range from soft and neutral to bright and bold, for endless design options
  • Versatility of Corian® materials makes them ideal for coordinating surfaces that have diverse needs and uses
