The Milan week of design will be the setting for a remarkable, never-before-seen exhibition: "CORIAN® CABANA CLUB." This must-see event proposes a multicultural and emotional journey into the world of Maximalism.

Martina Mondadori Sartogo (editor-in-chief) and Christoph Radl (creative director) of Cabana magazine will be the art directors of the exhibition, with the collaboration of Martino Berghinz Studio. Seven world class personalities in the fields of fashion, decoration and design will conceive a series of scenes in the emotionally and sensorially rich style unique to Cabana.

Through an experiential path, which will combine Corian® with a variety of fascinating decorative patterns, lighting effects and music, visitors will travel to a surprising “village”: the “Corian® Cabana Club.”

The “Corian® Cabana Club” will feature seven “maximalistic scenes,” with each setting styled by a different creative, inspired by a different culture and which will include Corian® as a key element. The centerpiece of this village will be an iconic sculptural piece in Corian® delicately interacting with water.

The seven scenes of the ”Corian® Cabana Club” will be created by Cabana Magazine and Corian® Design in collaboration with:

“It is a great pleasure to be at the Milan Design Week with a prestigious partner such as Cabana and a network of collaborators with their own unique creativity, taste and style. Playing an avant-garde role since its founding, Cabana is opening new paths in the world of interior design, proposing fascinating explorations of places strongly connected with emotions and personality, memory and uniqueness, heritage and a forward-looking mindset. These paths reflect the new direction that Corian® Design is taking.” - John Richard, DuPont Surfaces.

“Corian® is uniquely suited with color and aesthetics that conjure warmth and emotion that the interior design world, and society as a whole, are expressing as they absorb and elaborate cultural and artistic messages from around the globe. We are confident that the exhibition we are developing with Cabana, which will feature new and emotionally rich aesthetics of Corian®, will capture the imagination of the global design community and will be recognized as a powerful demonstration of the great, not fully discovered, expressive capabilities of Corian®.” - John Richard.

All the colors from the brand new Concrete, Prima and Onyx collections of Corian® and many others will be featured in this exhibition, which also celebrates the 50th anniversary of Corian®, 50 years of global commitment to design and architecture.

The installations and furnishing solutions in Corian® for the exhibition will be fabricated by Hasenkopf Manufaktur (Germany) and by CTC (Italy), members of the the Corian® Quality Network-Industrial Partner program.
