Portraits of Life themes

New Tradition

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.

Industrial Loft

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.

Rustic Chic

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.

Mediterranean Summer

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.

Vintage Romantic

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.

Modern Retro

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.

Contemporary Black

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.

Urban Affluent

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.
