Lucie Koldova just designed the very corques sofa ever made. For the launching of young belgium company Per/use, the czech designer imagines the Corques sofa using cork as basic material. This sustainable cork comes from production leftovers in Portuguese bottle cork factories.
The sofa is defined by a strong, sparkling design; the trendy look going hand in hand with a timeless character and environmental awareness. A curvaceous, organic outer contour combines the earthly coloured cork with the contrasting colourful Divina fabric from Kvadrat.
Cork is known for its distinctive properties of elasticity, durability and low conductivity. On top of this, it is completely natural and biodegradable which makes it a very attractive material to work with. Other benefits are the versatility of this material and the resistance to wear and tear.Designer: Lucie Koldova
