The burnt oak cork surface of this cork cylinder adds a hidden layer to the surface. It has been pulled from abstraction into the world of physical forms, made to contain, organize, or collect items. Use it for dried flowers or to gather things you use regularly.
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.
