    Corian meets functional and aesthetic brief at Melbourne Museum’s Children’s Gallery

    CASF Australia

    Corian was specified by the designers for the Pauline Gandel Children’s Gallery at Melbourne Museum.

    Designed as a permanent exhibition, Melbourne Museum’s Children’s Gallery is expected to last 15-plus years. Visited by thousands each day, the gallery caters to children aged up to 5 years and their families. Given the high traffic, the materials used for the gallery needed to be highly durable and easily maintainable. Additionally, considering the target audience, the environment had to be designed to attract young children and retain their interest.

    Corian was the only product identified by the Design Studio, Museums Victoria team that could meet the functional and aesthetic requirements of the brief. Corian Solid Surfaces can be shaped across complex curved joinery forms. In this particular application, the extensive colour palette of the material allowed ambitious design concepts to be realised as high quality joinery and exhibition experiences.

    A material of exceptional quality, Corian has contributed to the creation of a world-class Children’s Gallery that is receiving accolades from its visitors and museum peers.

    Corian colours used in the gallery included Sun [C], Mandarin [C], Hot [C], Antarctica [C], and Glacier White [A].

    Corian Solid Surfaces can be used for displays, exhibition experiences, interactive table cladding and wall cladding.
