Eggersman’s Corian Collection

What does venerable German manufacturer Eggersmann offer by way of innovation in the kitchen that recent aspirants Damenico Palucci, Scavolini, and Hacker have not? How about “the magic of reduction, concentrating on the bare essentials and a feel for design and architecture within a given space—free-spirited attitude, competence, an unmistakable intuition for zeitgeist, aesthetics, contours, and materials.” Though I must disclose I’m a sucker for any company that manages to incorporate the word “zeitgeist” into their P.R. material, I’d go with Eggersman’s Corian Collection on aesthetics alone.

Corian Collection. Designed by Eggersman.

The comprehensive kitchen scheme—featuring countertops, facing, and appliance surrounds in the appealing milky white shade and singular texture of this non-porous, non-toxic, and exceedingly durable material—projects a retro-futurist ethos that would make Stanley Kubrick proud. Beyond the look (clean lines, boxy profiles, and expansive surfaces), the space-saving features (a sink whose slightly rounded edges accommodate slide in/slide out cutting boards), and the enticing innovations (an integrated fan and odor extractor that enigmatically appears—very like Kubrick’s 2001 “monolith”—only when needed), the Corian Collection is a Godsend for the ultra-fastidious–many of whom, I’m sure you’ll agree, often make the kitchen into their personalized refuge of organization: all appliances can be seamlessly integrated into the prevailing aesthetic, thus obviating the need for the usual agonies vis a vis the disruptive look of the stove or refrigerator.




Eggersman’s reputation for “Unique” solutions precedes them. Winners of the Red Dot and German National Design awards for their “BOX Light” storage system in 2008, their contribution with Corian should be a contender for similar accolades.
