X-Cork is a wall art, 100% sustainable, entirely handmade, formed by interwoven strips of pure cork, authentic, inspired by the canasta, typical Portuguese basketry. Its versatile design, far from simple covering, allows it to be used as a wall hanging tapestry or wall accent, as well as a window or partition blind. Whatever the application, the result is an exceptionally sophisticated, authentic and cosy environment. The authenticity of the natural, an unostentatious luxury.
Each X-CORK wall art, in fact like all Magna Natura works, is unique and unrepeatable, due to the beautiful natural irregularities of cork. The cork used is a natural raw material, in its purest state, presenting extraordinary versatility and incredible chromatic and textural diversity. What appears to be imperfection, or unfinished, is actually a reflection of its purity and the result of Mother Nature's own design, which we keep intact, perfectly imperfect.
The Magna Natura design goes beyond the decorative aspect, The interlacing of the strips enhances the natural acoustic benefits of pure cork, absorbing part of the sound waves, like a sound trap, making the space acoustically comfortable and in a cosy and authentic environment.
ABOUT THE DESIGN
Each piece of wall art in pure cork, in its most natural state, is carefully made by hand, as it is impossible to be industrialized, but it is not about craftsmanship, but about careful design. It is easy to understand that our proposals are at a level well above the solutions of particulate recycled cork, which, although still natural, is uniform and monotonous. It is not a simple wall covering, but a work that transforms an apathetic surface into an extraordinary mural with unique acoustic benefits.
X-CORK is a wall art, 100% sustainable, not only because it is pure cork that is extracted without harming the tree, which remains alive for generations, but also in this case by using stripes of cork from the production of cork stoppers, and carefully selected, revaluing what was not this beautiful solution and with special acoustic benefits, it would be for crushing and producing industrialized products.
Each work is made to order. We present our proposals for the size and arrangement of cork pieces that can be customized within certain limits to be confirmed, according to the client's taste.
Customer projects are welcome and we can prepare the work for a quick application and in the quantity and finish according to the project. The versatile X-Cork design allows for great flexibility in dimensions.
We know that our products have a value well above their price, and so we trust that being able to physically feel our product you will understand why our solution is ideal, if your goal is not just to temporarily cover a wall in any way or at the lowest cost.
