The Cork Connection
The Cork Connection is a collection of three stools, featuring cork as their centrepiece, juxtaposing the cork with distinct and different materials and examining the relationships between these materials through the lenses of form, joins, and contrast. The collection features two stools with plywood frames and one with a stainless steel frame. The combination of these materials accentuates the natural and simple qualities of cork through the use of pure and simple joins and assembling techniques, allowing the material itself to be the focus. The plywood is bent in an angle that allows the cork seat to be locked inside the structure without any fasteners or adhesives. The round stainless steel stool features one continuous line that wraps around the cork seat to hold it in place.
