Porcelanosa Facades Project Featured in The Architect’s Newspaper
Porcelanosa’s KRION® Solid Surface Material was used as a cladding solution for the redesigned lobby space of the CME Center in Chicago, IL.
KRION® is a unique solid-surface material that is made of two-thirds natural minerals (ATH – aluminium trihydrate) and a low percentage of high-resistance resins. Its unique composition gives it a large amount of properties – including its lack of pores, ability to be thermocurved, ease to repair and maintain, and high resistance to temperatures, stains, impacts and more – making it an ideal product to use in this facade’s design.
Over 2,000 KRION® panels were used throughout the project to support the glass panels that surround the lobby, and cover 100,000 sq. ft. of space. The design has a unique look – starting from the floor of the inside of the lobby and rising up to extend its way outside of the glass panels.
