Lava demonstrates the strong visual contrast offered by Corian DeepColour technology, through processes of engraving and shaping, to further exemplify the curvature capacities and visual intensities of this exceptional material. 

This wall tiling system changes the ambience of a space by invigorating it with an intense and varied spatial topology. The darkness of the Deep Color Technology is accentuated by carving into the material to highlight its capacity to achieve multiple levels of translucency based on thickness. This affect produces a system that stimulates an otherwise simple space with a strong visual experience of contrasting warmth of light and darkness made possible only with Corian DeepColour technology. 

Utilizing existing fabrication techniques of CNC Routing and Vacuum Forming, this system allows for adaptability across many commercial industries and a high level of personalization for each specific client. Through manipulating levels of light transmittance and material transformation, this proposal demonstrates a novel approach to utilizing Corian’s highly malleable material properties and explores its illuminative ability with Corian DeepColour technology to exemplify its uniqueness.
