“The spirit of changing, growing, learning and improving as an essential part of the design philosophy of John Sebastian is one of the reasons for our long-term relationship. To keep developing and offering new and improved solutions simply is at the core of DuPont™ Corian®, which is what we want to demonstrate with the Endless Evolution Initiative“, says Christian Ekwall, Business Director for the DuPont Building Innovations

A project of John Sebastian in collaboration with DuPont™ Corian®
The design idea behind the “Verve” chair
Within some projects I developed in the recent past, I discovered the unique design versatility, the formability and the visual lightness of DuPont™ Corian®, an advanced material made by DuPont company combining properties of both metals and advanced resins. For this project, I wanted to explore and expand the tactility, the sensoriality of DuPont™ Corian® by creating a seating solution that would accommodate the current needs and behaviour of people, while balancing art, aesthetics and science.
"I first met John Sebastian, when we approached him for our “DuPont™ Corian®: 40 Years - 40 Designers” event at 2007 Milan week of design. He had never worked with Corian® before, he immediately accepted the challenge and designed one of the most elegant and original pieces of the whole exhibition: a light, gently-shaped, black and white fruit holster, alternating stripes of DuPont™ Corian® with void spaces...." says Helle Jensen, DuPont™ Corian®, country manager, Denmark.
