Disney, DuPont team up to unveil TRON designs
Milan, February 1, 2011
DuPont, a science-based products and services company, has partnered with Walt Disney Studios to showcase an exhibition inspired by the film “TRON: Legacy” at the upcoming Milan week of design show.
The event, to be held from April 11 to 17, is the most important venue for interior design professionals from around the world.
The “TRON designs Corian” exhibition is an original project which will be art directed by DuPont and Disney and created using DuPont Corian advanced surface for the overall lay-out and for a surprising scenography, said a statement from DuPont.
The overall effect and expression of “TRON: Legacy” has inspired many artists and designers across fashion, music, design and technology.
From the original Daft Punk soundtrack, to exclusive apparel and designer jewellery, to the brand-new videogame “TRON: Evolution”, the world of “TRON” has become a lifestyle phenomenon, the statement said.
In addition, under the guidance of Disney and DuPont, a series of leading and trendy companies, architects and designers will create fascinating interior design solutions and architectural forms, taking inspiration from “TRON: Legacy” and exploiting the versatility of DuPont Corian.
DuPont has had an innovation-oriented presence at Milan week of design since the late ‘90s, sponsoring and organising many exhibitions featuring surprising and pioneering interpretations of DuPont Corian high-tech surface conceived by architecture and design “maestros.”
These include Ettore Sottsass, Marc Newson, Ross Lovegrove, Ron Arad, Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel, Amanda Levete Architects and Karim Rashid.
DuPont Corian has also increasingly been applied by dozens of world-class companies producing beautiful and advanced commercially available furnishing solutions for residential and public environments.-TradeArabia News Service
