"A Seamless appearance and in a true deep black colour"
Kevin Hoy, Owner of fabricators Cutting Edge on the Aquatics Centre by Zaha Hadid Architects
2014 - "The wall panelling in Corian® around the lifts was installed to replace some metal cladding, using instead a material that could provide a seamless appearance – and in a true deep black colour. A matt finish was specified in this case, but the new Deep Nocturne colour also produces a beautiful gloss when polished. It was a great experience to work with the new DeepColour™ Technology, it performs very well. What's more, the architect and client both seemed very happy that this new option was available to them"
"An Overload of Geometric Reflection"
Designer Giles Miller Creates a Grooved Louvres Desk
2013 – The London Design Festival commissioned Giles Miller, a designer who had never worked with DuPont™ Corian®, to make a functional design piece with new Corian® Deep Nocturne. As the first point of contact for Festival visitors at the Victorian & Albert Museum, the desk is made using intricately machined panels designed to use light, to reflect and play on the angled and etched Deep Nocturne surfaces.
"Seamless Depth of Colour in Shaped Surfaces"
DuPont Global Technical Marketing Manager Eddy Verschueren on a Sculptural Wall in Deep Nocturne
2013 – This exhibit showcased the ability to create complex shapes in truer blacks, with simpler finishing, less polishing and a more consistent surface. Used as the DuPont booth at the 100% Design exhibition, part of London Design Festival 2013, this wall of seamless 'pyramids' features the flexibility of the new DeepColour™ Technology.
