Belgium-based design studio Twodesigners have created Kork, a family of beautiful objects made from cork.
Every piece is composed of a metal hooping in which two elements enter and combine. The use of cork as a material guarantees an assembly without using any paste or screw. The metal hooping compresses the two elements and creates a mechanical solidity. So in its use the concept proposes a multitude of possible assemblages based on some basic cork pieces, transforming the object along with every new combination.
Saving raw material was also a priority in our research subverting the image of the simple cork, this family of objects is based on the connection between the various typologies.
