Kitchen designer Mal Corboy picks up an international award for a kitchen using Corian®. The winning kitchen project, located in a clifftop home on Waiheke Island, offers maximum functionality in a stunning visual statement. The judges admired how it combined extraordinary attention to detail with proportion and balance, as well as the provision of a practical showpiece scullery and a bench in Corian® ‘Glacier White’.
“There is no such thing as ‘one size fits all’ when it comes to kitchens. The increasing number of cooking shows on TV means people are entertaining more at home, and the meals they create are becoming more complicated, which requires more kitchen appliances than ever before. The challenge is to fit them all in while maintaining an aesthetically pleasing feel to the space. “said Mal Corboy.
Corian® is an amazing product that can be used anywhere in the kitchen, from benchtops to doors and even walls! “I have been designing with Corian® for over 20 years and have won numerous awards where it has featured in my designs. I really love the fact I can push the boundaries with Corian®, designing everything from cantilevered tops to thermo-formed shapes which I have done in the Waiheke Island kitchen.” said Mal Corboy.
“The advantage for me is that as long as I have been in the industry Corian® has been on the market – numerous products that have been similar to Corian® have come and gone but Corian® has stood the test of time. Many of my clients have had Corian® in the past and always want it again, which in itself is a great endorsement. “said Mal Corboy.
