Outline

Designed to invoke a traditional sofa motif, these ecological cork tiles are made of loosely set wine cork shavings. Line floors, walls and fittings with these tiles to transform surfaces that were once dead space into soft, warm “sofa" areas. Transform living room walls into backrests. Transform bedroom walls and bed panels into headboards. Transform the sides of bookcases into surfaces for leaning while reading. Transform areas along stairs in movie theaters into places for moviegoers to rest while waiting to be seated. Cork is also an excellent material for absorbing sound, insulating rooms, making surfaces flame retardant and absorbing shock - the perfect material for lining the walls of hospitals, children's facilities, sound rooms and recording studios. Cork also transforms walls into the perfect surface for pinning notes, papers and decorative items.
