Realised through of the creative vision of Karim Rashid and the scientific expertise of DuPont, “Smart-ologic Corian® Living” offers ideas, concepts and solutions for the ongoing ‘re-thinking’ of design and technology in the living environment. Every area of the home, from kitchen and bathroom to bedroom, garden and undulating walls, has been realised by Karim Rahsid using this high-performance, forward-looking material and each area features specific solutions for enhanced efficiency. Light, colour, pattern and playfulness characterise the welcoming pod-like environment.

“Smart-ologic Corian® Living” is a smart and sustainable home concept exploiting the superior versatility and sensual qualities of DuPont™ Corian®. The project showcases the colour, variety and adaptability of Corian®, including the new 2010 series with recycled content, plus proposes a “futuristic type” of Corian® made with environmentally sustainable bio-based components and with recycled material. Further advanced solutions from DuPont for decreasing the environmental footprint of buildings also feature in the design (including DuPont™ Energain® phase change panels for reducing energy consumption, high-performance DuPont™ Tyvek® building membranes, photovoltaic systems, and sophisticated DuPont™ Zodiaq® quartz surfaces made with a ratio of recycled content).
