DuPont™ Corian® brings a new sense of discovery to Times Square May 18-22 with two experiential exhibitions destined to be focal points of the Design Pavilion™ during NYCxDesign, the city’s five-day cultural event, bringing design and innovation directly to the people of New York. Media, the design community and the public are invited to explore the installations on the block of Times Square between 42nd & 43rd Street and between Broadway and 7th Avenue.
Corian® Cameo No. 3, created by ZGF Architects, represents the intersection of music, touch, light and social interaction, where sound exploration becomes the genesis of art in a new and interactive way. The piece transforms Corian® into a soft and atmospheric sculpture that allows a play of LED-driven light to glow through, while a multi-zoned sound system plays music and sound physically through the piece via three touch-activated podiums so that visitors can conduct their own personal experiences by way of music and light. The unforgettable sensory exploration was designed in collaboration with creative and technology firms Piano Push Play, dotdotdash and Uncorked Studios. Cameo No.3’s creative team was united by the notion of blending advanced materials and technology with nature, warmth and human touch — and making their work accessible to all.
The Corian® Movement Bar serves as a public gathering place envisioned by the award-winning human-centered design and innovation studio of Birsel+Seck, who interpreted what movement means in the lively, vertical, highly trafficked, phenomenal public space of Times Square. Birsel+Seck have rethought the quintessential “bar” as a gathering place, a place to pause, people-watch, rest and take it all in, using Corian® as expression. The exhibit features 2017 aesthetics, Corian® Neutral Concrete & Carbon Concrete as well as Zodiaq® Portoro.
“We are thrilled that Corian® will be featured in NYCxDesign’s Design Pavilion for the second year. We value the opportunity to connect with our customers in the design community, working with architects, designers, consumers and the trade to create visually stunning and high-performing spaces,” said Julie Eaton, global business director, DuPont Surfaces.
In addition to the exhibitions, on May 21, Corian® will host a global design panel discussion followed by a VIP reception:
