DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Cork Trays

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Versatile Trays

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for this concept was to redesign sustainable & versatile trays of bygone era which were usually in wicker, this series of objects looks to the purity and essence of traditional design, the designs brief was to come up with a beautiful, poetic, ecological series with contemporary expression. The design had to be pure in it's form of calming geometry with natural texture of cork, something that is unobtrusive. The product had to look beautiful when in use or not.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Made in Cork, which is excellent anti-bacterial and moisture proof. It uses two variants of cork to make this minimal, soft and essential object, the form explores the material properties and structure. The strap to hang it on the wall is made of rubberized for its strength and flexibility and the rest of it is made in more stiffer natural cork.The trays come in three variations -A Soft-Square, Circular & Loop. They can be used as stationary holders, fruit trays or jewelry trays.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
As it used the 100% natural materials, it is quite sustainable and ecological, maintenance free as the cork is anti-bacterial and anti fungal, quite long lasting and gets better with usage.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
It started in early 2017 was finished by mid 2017

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Furniture, Decorative Items and Homeware Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
The use of this natural material in it's variations from rubberized to the natural is quite unique in terms of its crafting, from 2.5mm thin layers that are glued together to for the structure. The design transcends it's physicality to become something that is quite poetic. No coating or polish is required that makes it more noble and humble, honest to the nature. The materiality in it's tactility and light weight is something that can been appreciated to.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
The dimensions vary from piece to piece, is also customizable to a certain degree as required in the context of the user.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The application of cork in a contemporary context with deep routed traditional objects and functions.

CHALLENGE:
the challenge was to handle this material in a very flexible and versatile context, usually this material is milled of turned, but applying hand-craft and some technology like laser-cutting brings both the man and machine together.
