KurkkruK - Cantilever Cork Collection

Overview Next
KurkkruK_01_lq KurkkruK_2

Kurkkruk is a chair that promotes an active sitting position. The design is based on simplicity and dynamism, minimal use of materials and components, and the revaluation of discarded materials.

The Kurkkurk is made of discarded corks that are ground down to granulate. The granules are pressed into a biocomposite using latex as binding material and having a burlap fibre structure. The result is a solid yet soft and ergonomic seat.

The seat is easy to remove from the frame. This enables the chair to be stacked horizontally, which has the advantage of saving space during transport and storage.
