It’s always been our ambition to stay ahead of the curve and push the evolution of design, style and desire, and we believe the NEXT Collection offers a fresh and new experience.

DuPont Building Innovations has formally unveiled the NEXT Collection, a master offering of surface colors, patterns and designs from DuPont™ Corian® solid surfaces and DuPont™ Zodiaq® quartz surfaces. The 32 new colors and patterns introduced for 2014 provide a unique perspective on the future of design.

The 18 new colors of the Corian® collection and the 14 new colors of Zodiaq® join an already design-rich array of dazzling designs that mix with various décor styles from traditional to modern; and environments from home to office to hospitality. The crisp colors, subtle hues and lush patterns of the NEXT Collection are divided into three distinct categories - Filtered, Deep and Catalyst.

“We embarked on a bold, forward-thinking approach when developing the 2014 NEXT Collection, with a focus on being aspirational with the design – what we want to be and where we want to go,” said Tom Perich, North America marketing manager, Surfaces, Building Innovations. “It’s always been our ambition to stay ahead of the curve and push the evolution of design, style and desire, and we believe the NEXT Collection offers a fresh and new experience.”

NEXT FILTERED: The Collection
“Peer through a softened lens.”

The subtle hues of Filtered softly represent the desire for escape and the chance to daydream. They are a warm addition to the home, yet can also be a comforting spirit in office, retail and hospitality.

As though peering through a softened lens, Filtered tells a story of subtle and grounded hues. It is a palette of colors light enough to be airy, yet with a connection to nature. Pale gray and white conjure images of wispy clouds, while tans, golds and warm gray suggest landscapes viewed through a sun-dappled haze.

NEXT DEEP: The Collection
“Explore your dark side.”

Rich, sumptuous hues offer a journey to the Deep side of color, where delectable coffee, fertile earth, and luxuriously soft materials serve as the inspiration for colors and patterns that indulge the senses and a sense of style.

Dark hues develop an ambience; creating an aura of mystery and enveloping spaces with subtle elegance. Innovative Corian® DeepColor™ Technology allows the creation of colors for an extraordinary new world of design possibilities. Deep, lustrous black is joined by luxurious browns and primeval greens that can be edgy, refined or lush.

NEXT CATALYST: The Collection
“Make a statement!”

Sparked by new bold patterns and solid colors, the Catalyst palette teases the eye with bold aesthetics to spark a reaction and propel a design forward. Swaths of solid color and energetic patterns take center stage, whether in vibrant combinations of pattern and texture, or color statements that stand on their own.

Standing out in the crowd is accomplished with gritty looks that show strength and raw power, or bold expressions in passionate red. Even normally quiet hues strike a design pose when rendered in wide strokes of color. Making a statement is crucial for reception areas, high concept hospitality, and even home environments. Make a statement with Catalyst color and pattern and launch an unforgettable design.

DuPont Surfaces 2014 Color Launch

DuPont Building Innovations continued its work with global trend experts and architects and designers from around the world to bring the 2014 aesthetics to market. Extensive research and design was conducted to create an optimal, high-performing palette that can be applied to a multitude of design situations. The colors were first shared with the public in June through social media and online vehicles.

“All of the new colors and patterns have been carefully curated with influences ranging from urban landscapes to nature, all with future design direction in mind,” Perich said. “We’re excited to help bring the NEXT direction in design options to life.”
