We are thrilled to be launching our new cork collection this week at the Colony co-operative showroom in New York. This collection is three years in the making and is fully inspired by the unique properties of cork itself.
In order to talk about the collection, we first have to share what it is about the material that has fascinated us for years.
Three years ago we began to research a material that had long held our curiosity. It is a rapidly renewable material. It is a powerful carbon sink. And, it fully represents the vision we see for our work and our business as a whole as we adapt and grow into the future.
This material fascination is with cork - the outer bark of the cork oak tree that grows in Mediterranean climates and can live for up to 200 years.
We are pleased to announce that we will be launching a new collection of cork furniture informed by the unique properties of this material as part of Here at Colony, 2021 in New York on September 22 - 24, 2021.
Along with our new cork collection, Here at Colony, 2021 will feature new patterns from Flat Vernacular, a new series of works from architecture studio Workshop/APD as well as little seen new pieces from Bec Brittain, A Space, Deborah Czeresko, Hiroko Takeda and Vonnegut/Kraft.
If you are in New York and can safely make it to one of the open days, please RSVP here for the COVID compliant staggered entry. We hope you can make it!
