Cylinder Mid

MC04

$165.84 USD

Serene and sober, our floating cylinder has an abstract elegance of the archetypal, but has been pulled from abstraction into the world of physical forms, made with the purpose of contain, organise, collect or shape things. Its sensorial roughness adds a hidden layer to the surface of the burnt cork.

 

_Every piece is unique
_Will patina over time

_100% Portuguese cork bark harvested in the Alentejo hills
_Slightly varnished with organic oil for protection
_15,3x 17,1 cm

Cork is a natural material, it can withstand high temperatures making it an ideal tableware companion. But, given its natural properties, it should also be treated with care: do not submerge it in water or put it in the dishwasher. Gently wipe clean with a damp cloth. Each piece is made from 100% organic cork bark leftovers and slightly burnt before pressing to get this particular color and finish. Each plate is varnished with a thin layer for protection to ensure durability.
