Corian® is attractive, flexible and functional—just like the offices it works in.
August 14th, 2015
A material subject to daily use must be not only durable, but also a pleasure to live with. The smooth, seamless workability of DuPont™ Corian® is excellently suited to office environments, whether in a home studio or large commercial operation. With a carefully created colour palette on offer, from the ever-popular whites to subtly nuanced solids and intriguing textured choices, a workspace’s ambience can be thoughtfully tailored to any objective or identity.
HBO+EMTB chose Corian® to form the strong sculptural forms of this new reception counter at a Sydney law firm. Matching Corian® was also used on the adjacent magazine rack, waiting area coffee tables and meeting room credenza shrouds, helping to create a fluid and harmonious client facing area.
The client wanted a striking reception that reflected the company’s values of professionalism, integrity and straight talking. The design seeks to suggest these qualities with a repetition of clean, uninterrupted horizontals and simple geometric forms. The curves of the counter, chairs and tables link to the curve of the building façade and give a subtle wink to the forms of the Harbour Bridge and Opera House through the window. The counter itself is simple in form with a sophisticated overlay of seemingly endless horizontal channels wrapping its surface. Given the relative complexity of forms, the designers needed a solid surface product that was trusted, consistent in quality and known to perform well, for joiners and end users alike.
