By Keat Foong, Executive EditorNew York—There is now a new showroom to help users apply DuPont Corian surfacing material in all kinds of ways. The material can be molded for countertops, flooring, bathtubs, sinks, vanities, and even headboards, radiator covers and seating for the kitchen, bath, and basically all areas of the multifamily home as well as common areas.   DuPont, surface solutions provider Evans & Paul and marketing distributor Dolan & Traynor are unveiling the flagship showroom, the DuPont Corian Design Studio, located in the Flatiron district in New York.  The 5,000 square-foot space is an interactive workshop where design influencers can consult with materials experts to address specific project needs and help bring their ideas to life. The showroom will be open June 1.“Our collective vision was to create a place of interaction and experiment, where industry experts can collaborate and create inspirational environments with Corian and Zodiaq,” said Elizabeth Lawson, North America commercial marketing manager – DuPont Surfaces. “The space will serve as the premier resource to demonstrate how DuPont Surfaces can be used as innovative, flexible and inspirational design materials.”To provide consultation and project support for commercial designers and specifiers, Evans & Paul surfacing solutions experts will be on hand and available by appointment through designstudio.corian.com. The Design Studio will also host a variety of rotating exhibits from designers around the globe.“The Design Studio is a showplace for new offerings, fabrication skills and real-life applications that convey how innovative designs can be flawlessly executed into striking spaces,” said Christopher Whitelaw, director of Research & Development – Evans & Paul. In use for over 40 years, DuPoint Corian can be thermoformed into seamless custom shapes and contours, sandblasted, routed, carved, laser-etched and backlit. With proper cleaning, the manufacturer says, DuPont Corian does not promote the growth of mold, mildew or bacteria, and is nontoxic and nonallergenic to humans. It can also help facilitate improved infection control, says the manufacturer. New York-based architects Michael Morris and Yoshiko Sato of Morris Sato Studio custom-designed the DuPont Corian Design Studio using cutting-edge lighting, sound and shape technology to create a “sanctuary of experience.”  “We have defined the studio space through the Japanese concept of a borrowed landscape. Like a delicate garden, it is a sensory experience where designers can look, touch, feel and see the energy that Corian evokes,” said Morris. “The specific technologies we have employed within the studio will actually draw people closer to the material, rather than farther away.”
