Boisbuchet cork competition

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

Boisbuchet integrates innovative architecture and design into the splendid setting of a 19th century estate. They invest in a culture that respects the past and builds for the future, research into a sustainable relationship between the natural and the man-made and offer a creative environment for people of all cultures to share.

The international community of designers and architect was challenged to design new and innovative uses for cork products or improve the existing portfolio of corked/based product. It results in a workshop for a competition organized by Vitra Design Museum and Domaine de Boisbuchet in partnership with Corticeira Amorim, the portuguese world market leader in cork production at the Domaine de Boisbuchet in France September 2012.

I was in the short listed with 20 other competitors invited to a specialized workshop where I submit my project known as “Universal”. It’s a cork bath plug with different and original shapes.
