new finish solutions. Its in-house ability includes state-of-the-art vinyl cutting for stencil and logo work, CNC routers for custom cast designs and CAD software to design and present 3D renders to clients. This offers a total packaged solution with no need to outsource any design work, ensuring consistency and quality. ‘Within our US operation, we can also


offer EPS (polystyrene) hot-wire cutting manufacture. This can open up some new possibilities with ultra lightweight architectural pieces, theming options, branding etc. The company can even coat with a thin layer of ArmourCast to create a realistic stone-look, but without the associated cost or weight,’ explains Nevitt. ‘The use of the three-dimensional form is also a trend, with our Sculptural line being very popular.

DuPont Corian was chosen for its sculptural malleability and hardwearing, repairable and easy-care characteristics. The undulating form is contoured in a multi-layered effect that accentuates the long sweeping curves of the overall form.
