MATERIA, Cork by Amorim

MATERIA, a collection of objects for daily use made of cork and focused on design, was born from the challenge Corticeira Amorim gave to experimentadesign for the exploration of new approaches to using cork. In some pieces, cork is complemented by other materials, but is always the main character. The project was presented in 2011, in Milan, with a total of 12 items developed by studios and designers of seven nationalities. Since then, it has been growing and the goal is to continue to expand, with the regular launch of new pieces.
