Atlanta Kitchen Installs Seed Bench for Light Up Atlanta
Earlier this summer, Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority riders got to experience art made of DuPont Corian throughout several of the Atlanta train stations.
“Corian is often thought of as simply a countertop surface,” said Mitch Hires, co-owner of Construction Resources. “The Light Up Atlanta installations show the true versatility of Corian as well as the talent of the Atlanta design community.”
For the project, C.H. Briggs commissioned Atlanta artists to utilize Corian and concept a design that reveals what Atlanta means to them. Minor crafted his design from his experience moving to the city as a young creative and its likening to the germination of a seed. Blue and white LED lights were used to simulate roots and leaves, which are a metaphor for growth and opportunity.
Atlanta Kitchen received sheets of DuPont Corian and set to work fabricating the material according to minors design. Corian is a durable and flexible solid surface material that is suitable for many design applications.
