KRION® Solid Surface in New York City’s Madison Square Park
Porcelanosa’s KRION® Solid Surface is featured in artist Arlene Shechet’s installation, Full Steam Ahead. The installation reconfigures Madison Square Park’s emptied circular reflecting pool with a series of KRION, porcelain, wood, steel, and cast iron sculptures. The sculptures design the space as an outdoor room or what Shechet calls “a manufactured version of nature”. KRION® is also integrated into the benches near the exhibition.
KRION®’s properties make it an ideal product for this project. It is thermoformable – sheets can be transformed to create curves and 3D shapes for intricate designs. Due to its high flexural strength, it is also easy to fabricate seamless aesthetically pleasing dimensional objects. It is also UV resistant due to its low thermal conductivity.
The installation will be on view until April 28, 2019.
