DuPont™ Corian® continues to broaden the horizons for designing with solid surfaces and returns to 100% Design this year with a global preview of six new dark browns made with pioneering DeepColour™ Technology and a fascinating, hi-tech kitchen design that celebrates the four new deep blacks introduced earlier this year.
The eye-catching ‘Super Black’ kitchen by renowned French designer Christian Ghion features an impressive island unit and a textured and backlit multi-functional wall system entirely fabricated in Corian® by Créa Diffusion.
Christian Ghion describes the concept:
"The fundamental idea: invite the visitor to see the kitchen with new eyes, the kitchen becomes the “choir”. Like mountains over-shadowing valleys, both black and translucent panels dominate over the rounded, sensual and generous forms of the island. Light creates relief effects, inviting one to look and touch.
The island becomes a professional kitchen, a kind of bar, where washing, preparation, cooking and presentation are aligned so as to produce active or passive visitor interaction. Here, the voluptuous fullness of the soft forms brings to mind an organ of the body, the maternal womb, or even the mother herself, something that is extremely sensual and generous, the safety of a shelter, the warmth, the tenderness of food.
The Super Black kitchen will be displayed at Stand K300 at 100% Design 2014
