“DeepColour™ Technology* – a key innovation presented at “Corian® 2.0” design exhibition – is a unique manufacturing solution developed by DuPont. It enables the production of DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces in dark colours which offer deeper, more intense and durable colour, improved wear performance and easier thermoforming, seaming and finishing. The overall performance of dark DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces made with DeepColour™ Technology* is superior to any other dark solid surface material available in the market. Through this proprietary technology, we can meet the needs of industrial companies, architects, designers and final users looking for advanced materials in dark tones, offering high performance, elegance, reliability and hygiene,” says Jean-Yves Bach, DuPont Building Innovations, Business Director, Europe Middle East and Africa.
The scenography of the entire “Corian® 2.0” exhibition will be created by renowned French designer Christian Ghion.
The exhibition will consist of three scenes:
– a kitchen scene, conceived by Christian Ghion and fabricated by French company Créa Diffusion, with appliances by Gaggenau and functional hardware for kitchen cabinets by Blum;
– a bathroom scene conceived by Christian Ghion using bathroom furnishing solutions and accessories designed and produced by Rexa Design;
– a lounge scene, created by Christian Ghion, featuring the Ambium® Dynamic Ledwall by Koledo in DuPont™ Corian® and including furnishing solutions from the Moroso production.
Each area will showcase applications of the dark tones of DuPont™ Corian® made with DeepColour™ Technology*, and the combination of DuPont™ Corian® with PMA-compatible wireless recharging systems from Powermat Technologies.

The “Corian® 2.0″ exhibition perfectly represents the dynamic nature of Corian®, and is a milestone in the Endless Evolution initiative we have launched last year,” adds Jean-Yves Bach
