Cork is sustainable, natural, lightweight, quite strong, flexible, warm.
Corkigami aims to take these properties to the limit, and also refers to the process of making 3D objects from 2D materials. Cork was chosen as sheet material to make this shell construction simply using this technique.
Strength relies on both flexibility of the shell structure and a special process of lamination using quality cork.
The shell rests on a solid oak stool, resulting a very attractive design. To protect the cork, a water-based varnish suitable for hardwearing surfaces such as cork floors is applied, it is very flexible and makes the chair durable.
