Designed by Miguel Arruda Arquitectos Associados, TAP Premium Lounge in the Humberto Delgado airport in Lisbon, which incorporates various cork-based solutions, has been distinguished in the A'Design Awards 2017-2018, described by the organization as the “world's largest and most influential design award”.
The design aims to be visually appealing and provide greater comfort for passengers, regardless of their length of stay in the lounge. Due to its soft and pleasant touch, cork makes a great contribution to achieving these objectives.
The dark tone of Amorim Cork Composites’ expanded cork agglomerate, used in the wall covering, also ensures a high level of acoustic performance for the lounge.
The cork-based flooring is supplied by Amorim Revestimentos.
“It conveys a pleasant and efficient effect through the design of its space and the materials used”
