Samsung Staron® Solid Surfaces created a collection of pieces made with Staron® and displayed them on exhibition at many design shows including 100% Design in London and the HD Expo in Las Vegas.
October 30th, 2015
Staron® Solid Surfaces created by technology leader Samsung, is manufactured from a natural mineral refined from bauxite and blended with pure acrylic resin resulting in a premium solid surface.
The wild life inspired collection created by Staron® included the ‘Killer Whale’ – a curved whale shaped kitchen island; ‘Armadillo’ – a wavy, layered luxurious bathtub; ‘The Zebra’ – a black and white sofa; ‘Hedgehog’ – a spiky sofa featuring Staron® base and squishy rubber spikes; and the ‘Owl’ speakers that feature owl eye inspired speakers, and have been shortlisted in the London Design Awards.
Visitors at the exhibitions were invited to the Staron® stand to interact with the unique objects, feel the surface, and see the design versatility that it offers. It also allowed visitors to see the varied applications of the product by seeing it interpreted into everyday furniture pieces with a quirky twist.
The original design concept by Staron® was created to inspire designers and architects to design past conventional standards, and think creatively beyond design boundaries. Staron® used the wild life inspirations to express this concept in a way that catches the eye. The collection also showed the smooth and monolithic nature of Staron® with its ability to create long continuous surfaces with no open joins. The thermoforming nature of the product was also on display, through the creation of smooth soft curves used for each piece.
Staron® is easy to clean and highly resistant to bacterial growth. For this reason, the material has become popular for use not only in kitchens and bathrooms, but also expanding into environments such as hospitals and restaurants, where hygiene is crucial. Thanks to the consistent solidity throughout its thickness, Staron® requires no additional finishing or sealants to protect its surface, so after years of use, the surface can be rejuvenated by sanding and repolishing.
