Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec design CORK TABLE for Vitra

Germany 11/2012

In anticipation of the evolving requirements of how space and work are organised, Vitra presented a multi-station desk made of cork, designed by Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec, at ORGATEC 2012. Created with open plan areas with limited space in mind, the ingenious structure offers remarkable versatility and functionality: a set of fixed vertical panels enables the creation of various different workspaces, promoting either privacy or interaction between users.

The system's functionality and sustainability are largely due to the use of Amorim cork, which in addition to ensuring acoustic insulation between the sections is 100% recyclable and biodegradable. Corticeira Amorim has collaborated with Vitra on several occasions to create cork solutions suited to the concepts created by the prestigious Swiss brand. In this instance, as mentioned in the latest edition of the magazine WorkSpirit, published by Vitra, "The material of the Cork Table brings warm, friendly aesthetic to spaces of intense focus, not to mention it absorbs sound and is naturally grown, sustainable material."
