also significant, is the third-annual partnership between the school and DuPont™ Corian®. design and technical specialists worked closely with design professor marco borraccino to teach pupils the potential of the material. three original projects in the exhibition are a direct of the workshop which successfully enabled designers to push the limits of their work and Corian® alike
