SITTING AND CHILLING ON CORK

furniture coated with recycled cork

THE PROCESS

Cork-02

CREATION

Cork is a wonder of nature. It is designed to protect the tree against aggressive climate, bush fires, grazing animals and moulds. It provides shelter to wildlife and income to local population. As a consequence, cork oak forests are considered a ‘National Trust’ area in Southern Europe.

CONSUMPTION

Cork is intimately related to another wonder of nature, with a high good-feeling factor, wine. This relation goes back to ancient times. Ancient Greeks were reported to use cork to seal their wine jugs. Cork stoppers remain the most popular choice today despite competition from alternative stoppers.

CO-PRODUCT UPCYCLING

The wine-cork marriage is short-lived, a few months, maybe a few years. This is why recovered cork stoppers are now formulated with bio-based resins to produce design furniture such as stools and chairs. The comfort of the materials and the seamless look, together with the product history (remember this nice glass of wine) create a happy sensation to users.
