Back to School

Our best and brightest deserve the best and brightest – which is why Durat was an obvious choice for so many school projects this year.   One of the schools that opted for this vibrant solid surface and its extensive color palette was Two Rivers Public Charter School in Washington DC.  The design firm, cox graae+spack, chose three Durat colors for the project and created a beautiful, inspiring environment for our next generation of inspired minds.

This House is Just Cool

The most popular draw at GreenBuild last year, the Unity Home, is now even cooler with the addition of IceStone as the countertop for the 2015 GreenBuild show.  This modern surface of concrete and recycled glass and its progressive leadership will be on hand at the Modern Surfaces booth (Booth space: 4128) to answer any questions about “Life After Granite.”

This Product is on Fire

Charred wood is the latest addition to the CaraGreen suite of beautiful, natural  materials.  We have partnered with reSawn Timber to bring the ancient technique known as “Shou Sugi Ban”  or “burning cedar” to the design community.  This centuries-old Japanese technique creates an amazing aesthetic and a natural feature that introduces resistance to the elements.    The wooden planks are charred and finished making them perfect for vertical applications.  Suitable for interior and exterior environments, and available in a variety of colors, finishes, species and levels of charring, this product is a must have for designers.  Get it while it’s hot!

Dolling Up Durham

PaperStone CoverPly and Kirei Echopanel were great additions at American Underground in Durham.  Unlike the solid PaperStone, CoverPly uses recycled paper for the surface only.  The durable exterior of CoverPly with its layered birch interior enabled a cost-effective, attractive surface.  EchoPanel was a great choice to add acoustic control to the open ceiling.  With their extensive selection of systems, high recycled content and a myriad of colors and shapes, EchoPanel is an easy acoustic solution that designers can use to create and complement new or existing spaces.   {Information:}

Wake Up!!

Check out this Kirei EchoPanel install at Wake Med-Cary.  Splashes of red and gray were custom cut from EchoPanel to create a vibrant space behind reception in a subtle, creative manner.  High design and acoustics control were both achieved through the use of this versatile panel.  And it is 60% recycled content.
