Cork is a really interesting material and comes with unique design challenges and opportunities. The sustainability aspect is interesting and open for debate, but the re-purposing of ground wine (or other) corks is definitely a great way to reuse the material.

The Globe and Mail has just published an interesting article about cork in design that features our Strata Stools along with some other great pieces.

 

I am really digging the simplicity of the Corker lights by Max Harper (above), which would match really well with Joop Couwenberg's cantilevered stools (for tecta.de):

We are hoping to experiment more with cork in the future, there are so many possibilities!
