parte bowl 2011.04 for Materia Portugal’s Amorim, the world’s largest manufacturer of cork, invited ten designers to design a product for their new lifestyle goods brand Materia. We were taken with cork’s lightness and malleability, and created a fruit bowl that is in two pieces, joined together by a magnet. The two halves of the bowl can be connected on different sides, allowing users to change its proportions as and when they like.

This tray/bottle stopper is something to consider, as it gives empty (or half empty) bottles a purpose. There’s an especially nice option when using several different types of bottles with different heights, as it would give your table a useful centerpiece for hors d’oeuvres (aka appetizers) while saving space. Designed by Carlo Trevisani for Seletti, the Appo Tray is made from cork.
