Dezeen promotion: Riluxa has expanded its Corian surface material collection with an array of new colours to help users create vibrant yet minimal bathrooms.
Bathroom retailer Riluxa's range of colourful surface materials are designed to be applied to its existing mix of customisable bathroom products, in a bid to "push the boundaries of minimalist bathroom design".
According to Riluxa, the Corian collection is designed to meet the demand of the increasing number of designers, artists, architects, and industry sector experts who are moving away from traditional white bathrooms.
"There are two types of Riluxa customer," explained Riluxa's CEO Frédéric Tomé Riluxa. "Those who want the more opulent style of our marble products and those whose taste leans toward a more minimalist aesthetic."
"Of this latter group, we've definitely noticed a shift in their buying patterns away from white Corian to the various colour options previously made available," he continued. "Of course, we want to capitalise on this growing trend, and, so challenged our design partners at Galfia – whose products we exclusively retail – to really explore the possibilities."
The new Corian colours can be applied as the surface to Riluxa's array of bathroom furniture that includes sinks, bathtubs, cabinetry, showers.
Materials range from artistic, decorative finishes like "the chocolatey swirls" of Corian Cocoa Prima and the "astral patterns" of Corian Cosmos Prima, through to bolder, statement finishes like Corian Citrus Orange and Corian Imperial Yellow.
"Don't get me wrong, Corian Glacier White is, by far, still our biggest seller and you can still buy all of our products in that and other classic colours," concluded Riluxa.
"But the sheer scale of the increase in sales of our bolder colour products does seem to signify a bit of a trend. We're just happy to somewhat accidentally be at the forefront of it."
They are all designed with "perfectly smooth surfaces" and to complement any other material, such as metal, wood, glass or natural stone.
Each surface is also made to be highly resistant and easily repairable, and non-porous to help maintain hygienic surfaces.
Riluxa is a luxury bathroom retailer founded in Valencia, Spain in 2015. It exists to provide "premium materials and high quality" products that allow customers to create unique, customisable bathrooms. Corian forms core of the business.
