Corker No. 1

Designed 2022
Warm, grounding, stable and flexible in the ways it can be used: Corker is one of those universal talents that simply look good in any environment as an extra seat or side table. Corker is available in three sizes and plays with its nature not only in its name but also in its design: The silhouette of a wine bottle cork served as inspiration. The piece of furniture can almost be viewed as a pop art object due to its direct, simply enlarged reference to an object taken from everyday culture. Corker originated at the London Serpentine Gallery Pavilion 2012. The design of the temporary summer pavilion was a joint project by the architectural office Herzog & de Meuron and Chinese artist, designer and architect Ai Weiwei. The cork design object was part of the overall concept. The function and design of Corker are timeless, and its material quality is forward-looking: The cork used for the production of Corker in Portugal comes from local, sustainable forestry and is durable and one hundred percent recyclable. At the same time, this piece of furniture owes its inviting, velveteen haptics to the material.
