within its ‘endless evolution’ international growth initiative, DuPont™ has developed a practical, reliable and easy to install solution – the Corian® ‘charging surface’. the wireless recharging capabilities are enabled by a cutting-edge united based on induction technology.

the technical properties of DuPont™ Corian® allow the charge to be delivered through the material directly. thanks to this feature, it is possible to create solutions offering integrated recharging capabilities with an elegant monolithic look and without making punctures into the surface in order to install the technology.

the ‘endless evolution’ initiative communicates DuPont™’s heritage and their vision for the future, with an approach that will continue to contribute to the success designers, architects, and artists. it encompasses manufacturing innovations, product development and technical programs that show the strength of Corian® as a versatile and reliable surfacing solution for furnishing, interior design and architecture markets.

  • This is a very elegant and clean solution for charging a phone. But please tell me that it’s Qi compliant! Virtually all wireless charging devices use the Qi standard, so it would be nice to know that this beautiful design is compatible with the real world.
