Shock Absorption

On the other hand, in the case of equipment that visitors can interact with, freely using the swings, it was necessary to prepare the floor for the absorption of high impacts in the event of falls. For this purpose, expanded cork was applied in the impact zones, providing cushioning for falls from heights of 2-3 metres…

Nature's comfort in every step

Cork has proved throughout decades its remarkable comfort performance. Cork aids in a better pressure distribution, producing a cushioning effect whilst simultaneously allowing feet to breathe and controlling foot temperature. Our products enhance foot comfort by providing excellent shock absorption, cushioning, ground…

What is damping?

Damping is the dissipation of vibratory energy in solid mediums and structures over time and distance. Similar to the absorption of sound in air, damping occurs whenever there is any type of friction that diminishes movement and disperses the energy. Each material’s damping capacity is referred to as its loss factor, a…

What is Cork
Cork will absorb water like a “sponge” if it gets wet.

Incorrect: Think of the most common use for cork, wine stoppers. Cork has been used for wine stoppers for hundreds of year primarily because it does not absorb water or liquids. Cork has also been used for years in buoys, lifejackets and other floatation devices, again because it does not absorb water and can remain bu…

Bringing back a part of nature to the artificial turf system.

As a natural product, granulated cork is a renewable raw material derived from the bark of cork oak from sustainably managed sources. Since 2007, granulated cork has been increasingly put to use as infill in artificial turf systems. For infill production, leftover material from bottle cork production is granulated.The…

How and when did you have the idea of using this raw material (cork) to create the Beller Collection?

It all started in January 2015 when Benjamin Pardo, executive vice president at Knoll, reached out to me. Both he and Roger Wall, president of Spinneybeck, had been interested in adding cork products to the Knoll and Spinneybeck collection. During their preliminary research they had come across some of my earlier work…
