Eager to dazzle with 30 new shades of Corian, DuPont entrusted its showroom in Milan to Giorgio Zaetta of Zaetta Giorgio Studio Tecnico. He then curated a quartet of design teams to test-dive the new palette, from Athena Gray and Noble Ecru to Royal Red and Chic Aubergine. Their handiwork, a series of one-of-a-kind furnishings in solid-surfacing, was displayed under the banner Corian Colour Evolution during the fair.
E15 Design und Distributions cofounder Philipp Mainzer went overtly cubic with his Prism cocktail and side tables. The Moustache collective’s contributions included Sébastien Cordoléani’s refined yet rustic Colosse storage columns, Inga Sempé’s round Balcon bath accessories, and Ionna Vautrin’s unmistakably organic Baobab table. Rabih Hage offered Colour, an off-kilter shelving unit, and Leftover, a table with a bar-code profile. And Tao Esterno, Everest’s brand of outdoor furnishings, enlisted Setsu & Shinobo Ito to shape the curvaceous Runon chaise longue and its matching footrest. 800-426-7426; dupont.com.
