“Smart-ologic Corian® Living” is the name of the innovative interior design project that DuPont™ Corian® and Karim Rashid are proposing in April 2010 at the Milan week of design: a smart and environmentally sustainable home concept designed by Karim Rashid, based on the superior design versatility and on the renowned sensorial qualities of DuPont™ Corian® advanced surfacing material.
“Smart-ologic Corian® Living” will also feature (a worldwide first) “futuristic types” of DuPont™ Corian® made with environmentally sustainable bio-sourced components and with recycled materials and will display other high-tech DuPont products able to decrease the environmental imprint of interior design, architectural and building solutions while delivering superior aesthetical and technical quality.
All the areas of the home – kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, living room, garden - will be creatively interpreted by Karim Rashid (see his portrait above on the left, photo by Roman Leo for Karim Rashid Inc.) and populated by a variety of smart home design solutions where DuPont™ Corian® will be the key player and the connecting element.
The world-class design genius of Karim Rashid is complemented in this project by the world-class skills of DuPont in the design of materials. Exploiting their exceptional knowhow in materials science, biology, chemistry and manufacturing technologies, DuPont science and technology teams have designed and engineered futuristic types of DuPont™ Corian® advanced surfacing material made with environmentally sustainable bio-sourced components and with recycled content. In addition, they have designed a new type of DuPont™ Zodiaq® quartz surface and of DuPont™ Energain® phase change material including environmentally sustainable bio-sourced ingredients. DuPont sees these as possible options to meet the emerging technical and environmental challenges that companies and professionals of interior design, architecture and building will have to face.
