Daniel Michalik / Cork Doorstop

$ 18.00


Daniel Michalik's studio focuses on researching and expanding overlooked materials to create objects that explore the intersections of material, culture and manufacturing.

Recently the studio has explored the secrets of cork: an engaging material with vast implications for healthier perspectives on design, agriculture and manufacturing. Cork is a sustainable material, regenerating every 9 years for harvest. The Portuguese regions of cork production hold centuries-old farming and manufacturing traditions that can teach us how objects can be made more responsibly. The Cork Doorstop reflects a love for the origin and context of material.
