Put a Cork in It. Then Have a Seat.

Cork is a material best known for preservation of many things, from an open bottle of wine to protecting out feet with comfortable flooring in heavy traffic areas. Love it or hate it, corks sustainable uses are growing like… cork. At 3Rings.com, a designer named Daniel Michalik is noted for his beautiful and organic furnishings created from reclaimed waste material from the bottle topper industry.

I’ve got my eyes on his spacious Cortiça chaise  ( 72” x 20” x  26”), which balances itself to support human weight while remaining pliable to allow for rocking and relaxing.

The Sway stool leans slightly with the natural movement of your body. Also make a perfect balancing seat to keep that core engaged at the office.

I love the idea of repurposing and with my love of wine from all over the world, I surely would be able to contribute enough corks for one of those stools. Or make it two… so I have someone to sit with. =0)
