This handcrafted cylindrical organic burnt cork bark plate will command attention anywhere it sits. But not only that – it's part of the Mother Collection by Studio Corkinho. For every sold item in this collection, they plant a tree in Northern Senegal to regenerate the forest (part of the Great Green Wall Project in Africa).
Studio Corkinho uses organic, sustainable material, harvested in traditional fashion from the cork oak fields in the Portuguese hills of Alentejo. It takes nine years for the cork tree to grow back its bark and as it regenerates, it absorbs five times more carbon from the atmosphere to fuel the photosynthesis it requires. Harvesting the cork is a net benefit to the environment.
Cork is fire retardant, making it a perfect choice for homewares and furniture. It's warm visually, and it's both light and sound-absorbing.
