Jean Nouvel for Corian

French architect Jean Nouvel has collaborated with Corian, a dupont company, to create an apartment out of the composite material. Nouvel had the following to say: "I have always seen Corian® as a material that symbolizes total abstraction - the materialisation of an “absence” that is difficult to construct. How do you make an absence present? That is the difficult and eternal question for an architect who wants to keep the poetry of the design while making it a reality. This is the main reason why I was passionate about the proposition of designing a space in Corian® that talked about light." photos Dezeen blog It's a shame this material's waste products are 100% non-recyclable!
