Redefining Cork as a Finishing Material

Most architects and interior designers never consider cork as a finishing material for a simple reason: it’s ugly.

Despite the cork’s perks as a material, it never found its way into high-end projects, until CORKMETAMORPH was introduced to redefine cork as a finishing material.

Thanks to generative designs and parametric systems, it has a stunning design that explores the mathematical and geometric art of M.C. Escher.

This unique surface creates a dynamic and progressive pattern that can easily adapt to any wall.

Thanks to the technology that is being used in the manufacturing process, bringing any design from the digital to the physical world is relatively easy.
