London based designer and architect Rabih Hage has used scrap pieces of Corian  to make these fabulous pieces of angular furniture. The designs were presented by DuPont Corian at the 2012 Milan Furniture Fair  to celebrate their new color palette. Rabih wanted to use off-cuts and pieces of the material to make something beautiful, saying: “I have always been fascinated by unused material or discarded cuts of stone, wood or metal, whether cheap or expensive. Reusing these materials as a luxury product and treating the off-cuts as something precious is my real motivation.” He emphasized the spirit of upcycled design by noting “a discarded material is as noble and precious as a newly polished stone.”
