When Solids And Stripes Collide: Corian® Loves Missoni
"CORIAN® loves MISSONI" was a collaboration of the the design versatility of DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces and the style of Missoni. Kitchen, bath, living and dining areas were designed by Missoni with the use of DuPont's Corian.
Missoni, an Italian fashion and homewares house has long been known for its beautiful textiles, often recognizable by colorful stripes, zig zags and flame stitching. Corian is a material that is commonly associated with durable solid countertops. Combing these 'stripes' with this 'solid' yielded design that is both beautiful and durable.
DuPont™ Corian® solid surface - an exclusive product of DuPont - is an advanced composite material delivering superior levels of functionality and aesthetical performance for flat and curved surfacing applications in residential, public and commercial environments, indoor and outdoor.
The results were fabulous as you will see.

Rosita and her husband Ottavio Missoni were at the helm of Missoni SpA for 50 years, together creating a unique, inimitable style that’s admired all over the world. In 1997 she handed the reigns over to her sons Vittorio and Luca and, for fashion, her daughter Angela, and has since devoted herself exclusively to the MissoniHome collections.
