Twodesigners | Kork, table and lighting

KORK proposes to start from the simple and usual cork and realize a family of objects based on the connection between different elements. Every combination has its own identity as well on a visual level as on a functional level. Every piece is composed of a metal hooping in which two elements enter and combine.

The use of cork as a material has many advantages and guarantees an assembly without using any paste or screw. The metal hooping compresses the two elements and creates a mechanical solidity. So in its use the concept proposes a multitude of possible assemblages based on some basic cork pieces, transforming the object along with every new combination. Saving raw material was also a priority in our research subverting the image of the simple cork, this family of objects is based on the connection between the various typologies.
