The Lisbon seating collection is a versatile line of chairs and stools leveraging the warm, tactile, natural feel of cork for home, work and especially work-from-home environments. In particular, the collection advances the sustainable potential of insert molded cork composites by using a biodegradeable alternative to non-renewable polyurethane binders which make up nearly 5% of present cork composites. The collection is designed to be durable and repairable while considering afterlife through frames built of recyclable steel tubes or beech wood construction. Currently in development.
