Feeling The Squeeze
What I love about the following pieces by Belguim duo Two Designers is that they make cork look thoroughly modern, edgy and cool!
The Kork series uses the combination of cork with metal hoops that are powder coated in various colours. Because cork is such a spongy material the use of the metal hoops is not just aesthetic, the hoops also squeeze the cork, compressing the object so that it can be assembled and held fast without the use of screws, glue or any other type of binding agent. Pure design genius!
The series is made up of pendant lights, a low table and stackable storage cylinders which were launched in Milan in 2012. I don’t believe these have hit Australian stores yet so to inquire further about these pieces please contact Two Designers directly.
