DuPont supplied visionary artists Ann Conte and Jeanne Wiley with sheets of DuPont Corian Oat and Corian Cocoa Brown from the earth-friendlyTerra Collection to create the interior of the “Woven Car.” An old rusted MG Midget that was given new a life and identity with sustainable design materials, the Woven Car was transformed with sustainable Corian® seats and window shield frame, made sleek and smooth by Sterling-Miller Design.
The whimsical and unexpected Woven Car design was created entirely from recycled and overstock materials, including pale gold seatbelts that were woven to create a checkerboard pattern around the body of the car, and 500 yards of webbing that was adhered to the shape of the car. The car’s stick shift is a bouquet of hollow ceramic flowers that were created by dipping live flowers in paper clay. The flowers were evaporated in the heat of the kiln, leaving a shell that was glazed. The tail lights are also ceramic, featuring 60s-inspired orange, yellow and red prints.
