In crisp Glacier White Corian®, this external ‘skin’ offers a pristine finish that is easy to maintain and even repairable. Highly ‘designable’ and completely non-porous, Corian® is resistant to UV, staining, mildew and graffiti and does not need any sealants or treatments to maintain its beauty, offering a longevity that can make a significant contribution towards sustainability.

Taiwan Pavilion @ 100% Design London:

IMG_0276IMG_0279

Theme:
“Qiyun—Eastern Essence—The Slow Living Movement of the New East”

Theme Concept:
Qiyun is an aesthetic principle unique to the East. It is composed of two Chinese characters: Qi is commonly know throughout the world as the life-force or vitality coursing through all things—Yun conveys a sense of internal harmony, similar to the rhyme or meter of poetry. Qiyun can be can be understood as the essence of a creation, perceptible only by a kind of sixth sense. “Qiyun—Eastern Essence” has been chosen as the theme for Taiwan’s Cultural and Creative Industries Pavilion as a gesture of moving away from the concept of past themes, such as “Eastern Trends” or “Chinese Trends,” which merely emphasized the elements of products’ exterior design. The concept behind “Qiyun—Eastern Essence” conveys a quality beyond appearance, taking traditional Eastern values such as “core humanitarianism,” “respecting Heaven and loving the Earth,” and “the harmonious cosmos,” concepts both primeval and with contemporary significance, having a unique spirit both humanistic and naturalistic at heart, and melding them with the products of modern life. This combination creates a kind of fresh lifestyle, characterized by the “slow living” movement of the “New East.”
