Considering the design added-value, leveraging cork’s unique aesthetic and technical strengths, MATERIA was conceived with an urban dwelling user in mind, one that appreciates comfort and practicality in objects that retain a strong personal traits and sense of identity.

Its human-centric character is a vital part of its DNA. Strategically, experimentadesign invited designers whose creative process pays close attention to both functionality and relevance (a foremost concern for contemporary users), coupled with a keen understanding of user dynamics.

This brand-new collection of cork products curated by experimentadesign with Filipe Alarcão as joint artistic director is designed by 12 invited designers.
