Durable, yet flexible, Corian® solid surfaces were thermoformed for optimal drainage and custom cut to fit with steel and glass elements.

ISSUES

  • Creating a modern bath environment in a high-end residential high-rise.
  • Choosing materials with a minimalistic, European flair that offer the necessary versatility for a complete custom design.
  • Designing a bath, shower, vanity and surrounding elements to be sophisticated yet highly functional.

CHALLENGES

  • Constructing a stylish bath and shower area with minimal seaming for a smooth, continuous design.
  • Choosing a durable, practical surface that could withstand daily use with water.
  • Finding a surface that can meet specific design considerations, such as the routing of custom textures, use of custom edge treatments, and use with glass and stainless steel.

SOLUTIONS

  • Versatile DuPont™ Corian® solid surface provided a virtually seamless, clean, modern look that can be used in a variety of applications including: bath surround, tub deck, shower stall walls and floor, and vanity top.
  • Durable, yet flexible, Corian® surfaces were thermoformed for optimal drainage and custom cut to fit with steel and glass elements.
  • Corian® used on the shower floor was routed into a grid pattern for both design consistency and added traction for the homeowner.

BENEFITS

  • Corian® surfaces meet any size requirements and can be thermoformed into custom shapes and routed, carved, sandblasted or laser etched—offering design flexibility unmatched by other surface materials.
  • Corian® is nonporous—making it resistant to stains, mold, mildew and bacteria—and easy to clean.
  • With a wide range of colors and patterns plus custom capabilities, Corian® brings style and function to both horizontal and vertical applications.
