New dimension tiles

2012, Jun–

This is a proposal when the preconceived archetype of a tile goes beyond. It is conceptualized by mixing the portuguese tradition of making tiles and the production of cork. An unexpected functionality to store objects is created by a new dimension. Is placed a simple elastic band behind each cork button. To use it pull a cork ball and insert the desired object to be holded against the board.This tiles could be arranged into entire walls compositions, or smaller systems. Therefore can be created a vertical garden, functional workshop walls, or a desktop complement. Infinite possibilities. Selected finalist for the competition “The Future of Cork” in Boisbuchet Vitra summer workshops, in collaboration with Amorim.
