Creativity and vision are driving architecture design, and the results are invigorating. Designers are no longer stuck in the box — they’re taking vivid, exciting, and compelling new directions. Prominent among them is incorporating curves into design.

The Beauty of Natural Curves

Sinuous curves are as desirable in design as they are in the natural world. Easy on the eye, they create dramatic, sensual style. They can also bring warmth to an environment or provide an ergonomically-safe space.

The Versatility of Corian®

To create those curves, count on versatile Corian® solid surface. Flexible when heated, Corian® can be thermoformed into many shapes or worked like wood to give perfectly rounded edges.

With Corian®, you’ll experience the freedom to create innovative solutions for almost any design scenario — from a shaped recliner that fits the body’s contours to a booth that encloses the users in their own private world.
