New Cork Objects
Vitra Summer workshops
with the great support of Amorim
Boisbuchet, France, July 2011

Cork is a traditional portuguese material. Part of our cultural heritage it has been around for long but only recently reinterpreted as a potential material for daily life goods. It is the ultimate green material: natural, sustainable and easy to transform. Hands-on the material will be our method as various material samples will be available for experimentations and model making of what could become future cork products. Manual skills for building and drawing are a must for this workshop as we recommend no computer in order to best enjoy both people and place.
