ISSUES

  • Designing a stylish deli restaurant and bar for a busy Florida airport.
  • Recreating an urban, contemporary atmosphere different from the owner’s other existing restaurant.
  • Choosing durable materials that could stand up to the daily wear and tear of a fast-paced, high-traffic environment.


CHALLENGES

  • Selecting surface materials that offered the color selection necessary to create a signature restaurant environment.
  • Overcoming the client’s preference for using granite for the bar and countertops.
  • Choosing materials that could stand up to spills, stains, hot plates, food service code requirements and the chips and scratches caused by constant use.

SOLUTIONS

  • Smooth, beautiful Corian® surfaces added an element of style and simplicity to a multifaceted restaurant environment.
  • DuPont™ Corian® solid surface is a name that the designers and the client both knew and trusted—making the decision to use it throughout the restaurant a simpler choice.
  • Corian® solid surfaces are nonporous and meet NSF/ANSI 51 food service Certification—both priorities to the client.

  • Durable Corian® is easy to clean and maintain—ideal for daily use in a high-traffic restaurant.
  • Corian® is nonporous, NSF/ANSI 51 food contact Certified and Class 1(A) fire rated—making it extremely functional and ideal for many food service applications.
