A permanent collection of highly innovative pieces of furniture designed by DuPont™ Corian® for Rio’s for Museo do Amanhã. The designed pieces include various pieces like ‘cosmos’, ‘tomorrow’s tables’ and ‘churinga base’ models, and the museum’s logo and service counters; the work looks futuristic, expressing how humans are shaping the future.
In Museo do Amanhã’s ‘We’ space, stands the 240cm in diameter and 55cm in height ‘Churinga Base’ encouraging deep reflections and considerations on what we leave or pass on for the coming generations. The Australian aborigine artifact is an endless tool that connects the past to the future through its flattened circular design that was fabricated by DuPont™ Corian® and then treated with raw claw painting and handwriting by artist Mana Bernardes to give it rustic appearance and highlights on the knowledge and abilities of previous generations to make a legacy for the future.
The cosmos piece, resembling a black egg, houses huge monolithic areas to provide impressive scale experience for the museum’s visitors. DuPont™ Corian® has created a 20 meters long, 14m wide and 11m high space for 200 people to interact in a sensory journey through the universe. The museum’s tour is virtual and takes uses through different mediums through galaxies into subatomic worlds of elementary particles, to the very heart of the sun, and observes how the earth and its life began.
The ‘cosmic horizons’ consists of six interactive tables to form a deep connection with museum visitors, revealing different aspects of the universe to enhance the user’s experience in the museum. The 130cm diameter tables, fabricated in Corian®, are vacuum molded, with precise oval cuts, and feature built-in monitors and reading slots.
The ‘tomorrow’s tables’, created in similar ways like the cosmic horizons, have three geometrically-shaped models that each have different dimensions. They all harness a metal frame that supports the Corian® elements and screens. These multiple interactive screens alternate between showing a collection of trends and scenarios, and provide interactive activities that enable users to form the future of our world.
Flexible construction materials advance surface and single and continues pieces have been formed to help form a smooth visitor experience, creating freedom and different custom choices.
In a glacier white tone color, the museum’s service counters and visual communications were designed, including the main logo which is composed of 300 Corian® pieces and decorated in 11 different colors. The service counters feature geometric shapes that are also made in DuPont™ Corian®
