Ron Arad worked with DuPont Corian for a show at Milan’s furniture fair. Lo-rez-dolores-tabula-rasa is an installation which brings sheets of blank Corian to life with film, music and images. It uses Corian as a screen, but rather than projecting on to it, the installation allows music and sound to emanate from within. A new concept for transmitting film, it breaks away from the traditional LCD screen which Arad describes as ‘like a black hole’. ‘By using Corian you have a smooth, perfect, stucco-like white wall, which is beautiful in itself,’ he says.
