Dezeen promotion: UK materials brand DuPont has renewed and extended its range of Corian bathroom basins, and photographed them in styled environments for a new publication titled Portraits of Life (+ slideshow).
With 20 families now included in the bathroom collection, the sinks and basins are described by the company as a "fundamental element of the DuPont Corian range".
Corian is a solid-surface material developed for architects and designers, and is used to create seamless architectural features, countertops and basins for both commercial and residential projects.
The renewed bathroom range includes models titled Purity, Relax and Energy – each named to reflect the products' aesthetics.
As part of the brand's Portraits of Life publication, the basins have been photographed in eight different styled bathrooms.
For example, the Energy basin is adorned with industrial-style taps and set in a tiled bathroom in one of the themed shoots.
More details about the collection can be found on the DuPont website, which includes a dedicated section for the Portraits of Life publication.

The veined bluish grey tones of Corian Juniper wrap seamlessly around the Corian Peace basin, making an intriguing contrast with the traditional parquet flooring. Paired with ornate taps, the eclectic combination refreshes the elegant interior of an urban townhouse.
The Corian Energy basin is encased in a shell made from Corian Deep Titanium and fitted with traditional utilitarian taps in a design that both enhances the industrial look of a loft-style apartment and blends with its monochromatic decor.
Smoothly set into Corian in the industrial grey Deep Cloud shade, the Corian Refresh washbasin offers a touch of contemporary chic to the wooden vanity top’s rough texture and provides an unexpected twist to a rustic ambience.
Bathed in Mediterranean sunlight, artisan style aquamarine tiles contrast with the velvety smooth touch of a Corian Serenity basin set into a Corian Glacier White vanity top. The space evokes the fresh fragrance of a bright summer morning by the sea.
In an interior design that boasts a bold mix of vintage wallpaper, boiserie and off-white hardwood flooring, the Corian Calm washbasin in a sleek shell of Corian Glacier White harmonises perfectly with its surroundings.
Inspired by Italian design of the Fifties, the use of marble in this setting recalls the spacious interiors of a mansion. Seamlessly incorporated into a cantilevered vanity top in Corian Glacier White, a pair of Corian Purity washbasins emphasise the refined atmosphere of this bathroom.
Integrated to a jet black mount made from Corian Deep Nocturne, a sleek Corian Relax washbasin works in crisp contrast with the dark wall panelling and checkerboard tiled floor to evoke a timeless elegance.
The smooth lines of a Corian Serenity basin installed within a frame of steel and Corian Deep Sable creates a sophisticated impression. With atmospheric lighting it becomes the statement centrepiece for a hotel suite or a penthouse.
