Cork is a unique natural material still to be fully explored. It’s characteristics can offer a series of useful solutions to everyday utensils – therefore it is an intriguing material to be explored design wise. Besides being a regenerating and recyclable material, cork has specific behaviors that cannot be emulated all at once by synthetic substitutes. For this reason, cork is irreplaceable in some specialized heat resistant and lightweight high-tech applications.
We are exploring the features and possibilities of cork as natural material for everyday design applications.
