BACKGROUND

With a starting point in trying to create an object that could serve as a link between different styles, everything from retro to modern and back, I got inspired by what for me symbolises classical icons like Brancusis sculptural columns, the technique of origami, pleated textile and chess pieces. These inspirational sources helped me to give the cork stool / table its strong geometrical silhouette. Massive but yet light thanks to the materials natural character makes the cork stool / table easy to move around like a chess piece and can thereby easily be placed in different contexts and rooms.

MATERIAL DESCRIPTION

Cork comes from the bark of the cork oak tree. The extraction of the bark is a process that doesn’t harm the tree and it is renewable. Every nine years there is new bark to be removed. So cork is a material that comes directly from nature and there is very little processing involved. The ecological footprint from its extraction until the final product is incredibly low compared to the industry average of plastic production. Therefore when you hold a cork object in your hand you notice that you are holding a bit of nature and not some synthetic unhealthy material. That’s the beauty of cork.

By buying cork products you are contributing to the preservation of both jobs and unique valuable eco-regions and life environments for animals. So all these attributes take cork to another level of importance for every kind of application.

As a designer I like to not only create beautiful and functional objects, but also ethical and eco-friendly ones and as a creator this is how I can influence a little part of the world.

Because cork is sustainable, the more people buy it, the more the cork industry needs to plant more cork oak trees, and that creates a cycle that is healthy for the environment of our planet. So supporting cork is supporting nature.
