Dermalogica flagship by Limeblue Ltd

Beauty is more than skin deep at the new Dermalogica flagship by Limeblue Ltd:
Corian® surfaces help to create an exclusive and enticing ambience that is built to last

Highly valued for its sleek, hygienic finish, sophisticated colour palette and creative adaptability, Corian® has long been the preferred choice for beauty salons, aesthetic clinics and luxury retail environments. Corian® is also a favoured material of Limeblue Ltd, and thus the obvious choice of surface specification for long-standing client Dermalogica, and their new London flagship store.

“The vision was to create a multi-sensory environment that would fully engage with the customer via sight, scent and touch,” says Kim Scillitoe, Designer / Managing Director of Limeblue Ltd. “Our approach was to divide the 1,500 square foot of space into clear and distinct areas with a coherent design scheme that would guide the customer on a visual and interactive journey. This was achieved through the use of sleek white curves, contrasting textures and materials, touch screen technology and unique lighting systems.”

Corian® became a key solution to achieving this vision, forming the interactive skin bars in the fresh Glacier White colour choice – a pristine background to offset a series of copper-edged oval mirrors. Corian® in Glacier White, together with cool neutral shade Deep Titanium grey, also marks out distinctive zones for the backlit product display shelves designed to entice customers into the inviting ambience of the store. Accent touches such as mirrored shelf fronts, plus copper blocks and pendants add to the sophisticated identity of the space, and the brand.

A prominent white brick-effect wall leads customers downstairs to the opulent treatment rooms and VIP area, designed for a welcoming sense of wellbeing. Here, further Corian® shelving in Glacier White complements a feature wall in the swirling, exotic mineral effect of Corian® in Grey Onyx. The advantages of this elegant newer collection of colours for such applications are clear: all the beauty of natural stone with all the reliable performance of Corian®.

“I am a strong advocate for using Corian®,” says Kim, “It’s the perfect material for realising my design vision. Not only is it hard wearing but flexible too and can be easily manipulated into curves without chipping like laminate does. It is also available in many colours and realistic finishes. I used the marble effect finish on the back walls for the Dermalogica store which gave the decor a high quality look without the disadvantages of using real marble. I find Corian® to be a reliable and versatile product that is highly durable, robust and easy to maintain. It is therefore extremely cost effective too.”

Other striking elements of the store design include a textured ‘Panelstone’ slate-effect wall, from PanelPiedra, which features a prominent neon sign representing the image of a face to intrigue passers-by, plus wood-effect limewashed chevron flooring from Amtico and a unique lighting filter control system called ‘Beauty’ by Targetti which gives the skin a flattering and healthy glow.
