The Corian Illumination Series maintains the same reliable properties as Corian Solid Surface, while allowing up to three times as much light able to pass through the sheet — making it perfect for backlighting.
Backlighting can be a key part of designs using the Corian Illumination Series. Lighting technology, particularly LED lighting, is changing rapidly and each technology has its own design considerations. The preferred type of lighting will depend on the desired effect.
The up-market Lot 108 bar in Mooloolaba, Australia features a unique Corian application. Corian Witch Hazel, one of the Organics Collection, has been reversed and then back-lit to deliver this stunning effect. The back of the Corian sheet has a more defined pattern, which is then accentuated by the strong backlighting in a relatively dark space. The overall marble look remains, but is taken to a sophisticated new level.
Light effects are becoming more popular and Corian can assist architects and designers to deliver incredible outcomes.
