Protection, transition, texture. The Corian Fishing Dock is wrapped around a pre-existing wooden dock, and peels away to form a fishing chair and boat docking. In the underwater portion of the chair, a light is shone through the translucent Corian to attract fish underwater. The layer which becomes the fishing chair is perforated for breathability, and the boat docking layers are roughly sanded for secure friction. The skin may be pre-manufactured and simply inserted onto the end of a dock. In the Corian Fishing Dock, Dupont Corian is and has skin.

“Stripe Corian ” uses thin Corian wasted at an construction stage and makes furniture of stripe. It is a characteristic of Corian that I let a different color delicately continue, and make a beautiful design newly. And it is closed in the template which did a chair and form of a desk.
Light_ray @Corian is a project which brings together the concept of light source and furniture fusioned into one object. Through out history we encounter the source of light shining from one place upon a composition of objects. This concept is challenging the idea of light, and its placement. Light_ray is a collection of furniture elements that allow the light to penetrate through creating a multitude of patterns. This creates fantasy environments and mood settings in a decorational manner. It could be a great medium for the interior decoration of night clubs and bars, creating poetry of patterns in the depth of darkness. DuPont offers the possibility ,for this collection to become reality , through its versatile material Corian . This is highly suitable due to its beauty in translucency and the seamless joining techniques. Glacier white and Pewter grey sheets are funioned together in basic shapes to create the chairs , tables, bar and drinks stand. The Glacier white is used in the BasRelief technique creating raised translucent patterns on the Pewter grey base, in this way allowing the patterns to shine through and cast themselves on the closes mediums. It is an easy technique that will enhance the moods of many environments.
