’Iconic design material meets world-class master in colour and style’. The CorianÂ® loves MISSONI exhibition was one of the must see shows at the 2008 Milan week of design. Still on show until July.
May 26th, 2008
What happens when you combine a global leader in design and architecture materials with a world-class style master?
The result was one of the most inspiring events of the Milan design week. CORIAN® loves MISSONI was filled with personality, colour and imaginative spirit.
A visionary residential interior with kitchen, bath, living and dining areas expressing the design versatility of DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces through the style of Missoni, the expo stood out like a sore thumb for all the right reasons. Open for viewing until July.
Dates: April 15 – July 31, 2008
Location: “Corian® Design-Milano Store”, via San Nicolao 4, Milano.
The titanic “Ball of Yarn” – a 2m diameter circular structure consisting of thin,
curved strips in twelve colours of DuPont™ Corian®.
A 3.7 metre long screen made with DuPont™ Corian® Glacier White surrounded the bedroom area, complemented by “Tiamat” round bed from the MissoniHome Collection. The backlit screen provided a fascinating backdrop to the room, creating interesting shadows across the ceiling.
The “Estelle” pattern was adopted in the two “PHC” cylindrical vanities by Boffi.
Designed by Rosita Missoni, the chandelier (above and below) featured an over-sized central white metallic cylinder with embedded LEDs, diffusing light down onto the suspended letters of “MISSONI”, made in DuPont™ Corian® Glacier Ice in varying sizes.

An established suburb, Elwood has become a hub for those who appreciate parklands and the beach while still wanting to immerse themselves in the social interaction to be found at nearby cafes, restaurants and speciality shops. And the Elwood House is the perfect example of this suburb’s popularity.
