PHILADELPHIA, PA, October 10, 2012 - C.H. Briggs is pleased to sponsor "Four Corners: Design from Philly Surrounds," an exhibition to be held October 10-20, 2012 at Philadelphia's Minima Gallery during DesignPhiladelphia 2012, a citywide design festival celebrating the region's dynamic creative community. Curated by design writers and experts Caroline Tiger and Royce Epstein, "Four Corners" is a contemporary enactment of a lived-in loft apartment that will contain a hand-picked selection of furniture, lighting and objects conceived, designed, fabricated, and/or produced by designers and brands based in Philadelphia and its immediate surrounds.

The exhibition will feature a one-of-a kind, ultra-modern bench made entirely of DuPont™ Corian®. Designed by Kevin Derrick of Philadelphia-based design studio Bahdeebahdu and brought to life by skilled fabricator R.D. Wing, the bench entitled "S'il Vous Play: Shipping Crates in Faux Bois" demonstrates the creative possibilities of Corian® as a design material. A whimsical sculpture of chickens designed by Harry Allen, of Harry Allen Design and hand-carved out of Corian® by West Chester, PA-based fabricator MacLaren Fabrication will also be showcased.

"We're thrilled to be part of the DesignPhiladelphia Festival," said Luis Arias, chief marketing officer, C.H. Briggs. "We can't wait to share the incredible possibilities of Corian® as a design material, and believe the architect and design community will be truly inspired."

The "Four Corners: Design from Philly Surrounds" ongoing exhibition will be held October 10-20, 2012 at the Minima Gallery, 118 N. 3rd Street, 2nd Floor, Old City, from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., Tuesday through Saturday.
