Based on color directions identified by Global Color Research, a London-based creative color consultant, DuPont brings new colors that capture the dramatic and subtle qualities from nature that include veining, earth tones, warm hues and fluid patterns.
Eight of the nine new Corian colors will be in the Private Collection group. The 9th new color is an attractive solid gray.
The three new colors of DuPont Zodiaq for 2013 will provide some exciting aesthetic differentiation. Two of the colors that have been added to the Zodiaq palette – Coarse Carrara and Coarse Marfil – offer fluid, consistent veining similar to the veining often found in marble. The 3rd new color of Zodiaq is a reflection of the popularity of neutral colors; Snow Flurry is a frosted white color with intricate gray flecks.

Solidify was inspired by global climatic changes and how our high-tension atmosphere can create crystallized and frosted solids. The cool tones of this trend are misted and sensorial, as melded metal and mirrored flecks are set within frosted solids for depth and dimension. The surfaces are fractured and scattered fragments are fused, creating delicate and ethereal patterns that bring a softly opulent edge to these hard surfaces.
Interference explores the lure of semi-precious stones, with a feeling of sparkle and glamour, yet with an understated opulence that conveys mystical and organic luxury. Bronze is a key metallic shade and when juxtaposed with subtle finishes and earthy textures, reflects the warm tints of raw sienna and terra-cotta.
Raw represents honest luxury, and the fresh hues that follow this trend embody comfort in a down-to-earth aesthetic that offers a respite from daily realities. Here, organic, yet polished effects are blended to celebrate the natural world and emulate plant materials and other natural fibers that are encased in transparency.
