Every year we are inspired by the brilliant creative work of its network of design and fabrication partners. Sharing images through social media, digital channels and PR keeps up a lively conversation about all that can be done with this remarkable material. Every year one such image graces the cover of the CDUK Fabricator Price List, but this year we decided to cast a wider net and to throw open the opportunity to be a cover star.
The project didn’t have be brand new, but unusual and technically impressive use of the material and, creative explorations of the market-leading and innovative Corian® colour palette are very welcome.
The winning projects of the 2019 Cover Star competition include an elegant kitchen/living design by Arthouse Creative Interiors Ltd., with Corian® fabricated by Bluestone Worktops Ltd., and a stunning ‘floating’ staircase installation designed by Adams + Collingwood Architects Ltd., with Corian® fabricated by Timberfusion Ltd., and installed by Fivestars Ltd.
The kitchen design takes its place on the front cover of the price list, expressing a dynamic use of the material and its seamless joining capabilities. Meanwhile its smooth, tactile, easy-care finish, and streamlined aesthetics emphasise how much added value Corian® can bring to a renovation project – and to the lifestyle of its end users.
On the back cover, the dramatic cantilevered staircase project with its extruded ‘pyramids’ of Corian® embodies the material’s key strengths in a variety of ways, as it succeeds here both decoratively and structurally. With no worries about wear and tear from footfall, as Corian® is robust, resistant, easy to maintain – and even to repair if necessary.
