Cork furniture: the why, the how and the what

When we think of cork, we might simply think of wine bottle stoppers. But the material, which has been used for thousands of years in various applications, is finding contemporary expression in a new and recent wave of cork furniture that harnesses cork’s sustainable, practical and aesthetic properties.

From Danish brand Raawii’s recently released minimalist, soft-edged Stringer range designed by Nicholai Wiig-Hansen, to Lara Bohinc’s bulbous Utopia furniture for this year’s Design Miami, it can feel like cork furniture has been popping up everywhere recently.
