Furniture for Jasper Morrison

Facebook Twitter

Factum Arte has produced a series of 25 furniture pieces designed by acclaimed English designer Jasper Morrison, all formed entirely out of recycled cork. The pieces are on show at Kasmin Gallery as part of 'Corks', Morrison's first solo show in North America (09 May - 29 June 2019).

The solid cork material was first produced from old wine-stoppers before arriving at Factum in large blocks of 2 standard sizes (960 x 640 x 200 mm and 1200 x 640 x 640 x 180). The preparatory stage could then begin, involving carefully skimming the thick material in order to flatten the surface, allowing it to be glued and cleaned. Separate blocks were glued together using a press and then carved through a traditional carpentry method in the case of the shelves and fireplace. Owing to the more sculptural and solid design of all the other pieces of furniture, these were produced through a modern milling process involving a 7 axis robot that was carried out externally.
