The robust members of the Cork Family stand firmly, making them suited for use as side tables or stools. They benefit from the advantageous natural properties of cork: comparatively lightweight and extremely durable, they also have a velvety surface that is pleasant to touch.
- Material: pure cork, lathe-turned, untreated surface.
Jasper Morrison, 2004
Jasper Morrison lives and works in London and Tokyo. His designs are expressions of the ‘super normal’ design philosophy: rather than seeking unusual or extravagant results, he often breathes new life into proven solutions by means of reinterpretation, further development and refinement. He has worked together with Vitra on a regular basis since 1989.
Vitra is much more than a brand but rather a staple of design. Established in 1950 in Birsfelden, Switzerland, the brand has left its mark on design history through its transcending path. Starting as a furniture producer, it paved its way to manufacturing and ultimately became the powerhouse design institution we see today.
