Rabih Hage at “Corian® Colour Evolution”–“Leftover” collection

April 2012 – DuPont™ Corian® once again offers a dynamic and inspiring new perspective to the world of design and architecture: at the 2012 Milan week of design, DuPont presents its completely renewed colour palette for DuPont™ Corian® high-tech surface in Europe Middle East and Africa, including fascinating new colour tones developed for a wide variety of architectural and design applications, interior and exterior.  The renewed colour palette is complemented by an innovative and user-friendly mix of marketing tools designed to facilitate the selection of the most appropriate tone of DuPont™ Corian® for specific applications, in combination with other materials, such as metal, wood, glass, stone, etc… a major renewal of the “DuPont™ Corian® experience”.

The focus of Rabih’s designs is on the use of leftover material and its reuse, treating the off-cuts and discarded planks used in the building of furniture as a “noble material”, reused in new luxurious furniture pieces. “I have always been fascinated by unused material or discarded cuts of stone, wood or metal whether cheap or expensive. Reusing these materials as a luxury product and treating the off-cuts as something precious is my real motivation. Especially, DuPont™ Corian®, which I regard as a sumptuous material. I like the imperfection in patinated antique pieces, and the patina of time is something impossible to imitate, therefore, authentic. To get closer to this authenticity I consider the random layering of off-cuts as a fine design gesture and authentic in the building of my new designs for “Corian® Colour Evolution”. Imperfection is beauty; a discarded material is as noble and precious as a newly polished stone,” explains Rabih Hage.

The “Leftover” collection includes Leftover Table, Colour Chair, Colour Console, Leftover Armchair. The “Colour Chair” desk chair, the “Leftover Table” desk or dining table and the “Leftover Armchair” visitors chair by Rabih Hage made in DuPont™ Corian® (with the new colours Light Ash, Absolute Beige, Noble Ecru, Blooming Green and Imperial Yellow); design Rabih Hage; fabrication by Clarendon Fabrications; photo Leo Torri for DuPont™ Corian®.
