Amorim are the world's largest producer of Cork and Cork materials. They are renowned for pushing boundaries and creating stunning Cork products for the home through to the space race and everything in between! And don't forget Cork is considered one of world's most environmentally friendly materials - the material of the future!
From the Materia collection of Amorim, Torno, with a fixation system that is both straightforward and flexible, is a detachable shelf/storage unit that can be set up whenever you need it the most. Shaped like a small tray or bowl, it becomes a handy pick-up and drop-off spot for the random objects that populate our daily life. Ideal for emptying your pockets of your: house keys, loose change, chapstick; or retrieve staple items you use on a regular basis, such as paper clips in the office, cotton wool in the bathroom or eyeglasses by the bed. Torno can also serve as a miniature pedestal or viewing platform to show off a prized possession. Inspired by the way cork absorbs both sound and vibration on impact, Torno's graceful size and contours make for a soft place to land. Designed for the Materia collection by Inga Sempe.

Cork is nature's own high-tech yet sustainable achievement. Down to its very cell structure, the unique composition and characteristics of cork simply cannot be replicated by anything man-made. Extracted from the bark of the Cork Oak, a native specimen of the western Mediterranean Basin, cork is a state-of-the-art raw material, requiring minimum transformation or processing before use.

Reusable and completely bio-gradable, it is one of the most versatile and sustainable materials in the world - environmentally, socially and economically it is without doubt the material of the future. Impermeable to liquids and gases; elastic, compressible, durable, highly resistant yet light and buoyant with low thermal conductivity making it a great insulator, cork's potential as a leading material for the 21st century is only now being fully appreciated and realised.

Spearheading this drive for innovation is the Portuguese company Amorim, the world leader in the cork industry. In addition to high-performance applications for the aeronautical, construction and wine-producing industries Amorim is now looking to put cork centre stage into the everyday. Under this initiative Amorim has launched three key collections: Korko Selection, Soul Mate and Materia.

Amorim is a key leader in sustainable development, in addition to processing a 100% natural and recyclable product, by harvesting cork bark without cutting down the trees, Amorim actively contributes to the preservation and viability of cork oak forests, both in Portugal and abroad. Amorim Cork the way of the future.
