Sustainable Design that allows you to leave a big footpring on the design world, not the environment.


Corian® solid surfaces have low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content, and have proven to be extremely safe as a surfacing material for over 40 years, with minimal impact.

Thanks to its inherent stain resistance, Corian® solid surfaces last a long time. It can easily be repaired and renewed, thus minimising the desire or need to replace and dispose of it. However, should you want to redesign, Corian® can be removed, re-cut and either reinstalled or reworked into new products.

Corian® solid surfaces (the whole range or specific types) have received important independent certification for their environmental performance (such as GREENGUARD®, NAHB (North American Builders Association) and SCS (Scientific Certication Systems). Their hygienic performance has also been certified by prestigious independent institutions (for example, by NSF International, The Royal Institute of Public Health and LGA QualiTest).

Corian® solid surface is NSF/ANSI Standard 51 Certified for food contact, the highest level, for all food types in commercial food preparation.
