Corian® is a hard yet ductile material, because it can be thermoformed using two- and three-dimensional moulds and counter moulds into almost any form. Available in an infinite variety of colours and textures, it can be backlit by LEDs thanks to its translucid property.
These technical and aesthetical characteristics make it the right material for creating or cladding counters and reception desks – in bars, restaurants, wine bars and wine cellars; in pharmacies and drugstores; for reception areas in large corporate headquarters and in airports.
How do we create a counter in Corian®
When we talk about counters in Corian®, we generally intend a wood substructure finished in Corian®, or a self-supporting counter. The following section will take you step-by-step through the construction of the tasting room counter we created for Schenk Italia and a large three-dimensional self-supporting thermoformed reception desk in Corian® for Durst.
