Milan Design Week (April 3rd to 9th, 2017) is the setting for "CORIAN® CABANA CLUB", a must-see exhibition organized by Corian® Design and Cabana Magazine that proposes a multicultural and emotional journey into the world of Maximalism.

Martina Mondadori Sartogo (editor-in-chief) and Christoph Radl (creative director) of Cabana magazine are the art directors of the exhibition, with the collaboration of Martino Berghinz Studio. Seven world class personalities from the fields of interior design, decoration and fashion have conceived a series of scenes in the emotionally and sensorially rich style unique to Cabana.

Through a giant doorway and experiential path (“The Gateway” and “The Tunnel of Mystery”, both designed by Christoph Radl) that combine Corian® with a variety of fascinating decorative patterns, lighting effects and music, visitors travel to a surprising village: the “Corian® Cabana Club”.

The Corian® Cabana Club consists of seven cabanas made up of seven maximalist scenes, each one styled by a different creative and inspired by a different culture. Corian® design surface is a key element in each cabana and scene. The centrepiece of the village is an iconic sculptural piece in Corian® designed by Martino Berghinz that delicately interacts with water.

The seven scenes of the “Corian® Cabana Club” have been created by Corian® Design and Cabana Magazine in collaboration with:

“It is a great pleasure to be at Milan Design Week with a prestigious partner such as Cabana. Playing an avant-garde role since its founding, Cabana is opening new paths in the world of interior design, proposing fascinating explorations of places strongly connected with emotions and personality, memory and uniqueness, heritage and a forward-looking mindset. These paths reflect the new direction that Corian® Design is taking,” says Julie J. Eaton, Global Business Director, DuPont Surfaces.

“Corian® is uniquely suited with colour and aesthetics that conjure up warmth and emotion that the interior design world, and society as a whole, are expressing as they absorb and elaborate cultural and artistic messages from around the globe. We are confident that the exhibition developed with Cabana, which features new and emotionally rich aesthetics of Corian®, will capture the imagination of the global design community and will be recognized as a powerful demonstration of the great, and not yet fully discovered, expressive capabilities of Corian®,” adds Julie J. Eaton.

The entire range of colours from the new Concrete, Prima and Onyx collections of Corian® and many others are used in this exhibition, which also celebrates the 50th anniversary of Corian®, 50 years of global commitment to design and architecture.

The installations and furnishing solutions in Corian® for the exhibition have been fabricated by Hasenkopf Industrie Manufaktur (Germany) and by CTC Design (Italy), members of the Corian® Quality Network-Industrial Partner program.

About Cabana
Cabana Magazine was founded in 2014 by Martina Mondadori Sartogo and Christoph Radl as an innovative yet timeless way to look at interiors and be inspired by them. Based in London and printed in Italy, it is a biannual publication in English distributed worldwide. Thanks to its unique printing techniques, fabric covers and view on interiors, it is perceived as a real collector’s item, with each issue making up a small piece of the collection. Cabana is about sophistication on many levels.

From the simplest object to the rarest collectible, from a rural hut to a cosmopolitan dwelling, Cabana explores the intellectual and emotional intimacy that people have with buildings and their surroundings while also celebrating the passion and endurance of artisanal creations. Each issue, which is masterfully put together by the magazine’s Creative Director Christoph Radl, is a hand-made creation, with its innovative printing techniques, specialty papers and finishes each selected to enhance the particular piece or interior it represents.

Over the past two and a half years, Cabana has gathered around the magazine a group of international like-minded contributors and aficionados that includes Christian Louboutin, Ashley Hicks, Tim Beddow, Patrick Kinmonth, Martino Gamper, Miguel Flores Vianna and Carolina Irving to name a few. In April 2015, Cabana expanded its outreach by launching an online pop-up shop on 1stdibs that focuses on unique antiques and a rapidly growing home and tableware collection. The Cabana website is due to launch in 2017.
