If you’ve ever heard the phrase “bob up like a cork,” you can probably see where this one is going.
This group focuses on finding creative alternatives to the impasses that plague consumerist life. Over 2,500 tons of cork stoppers are thrown away every year in Spain, but the material’s properties make it ideal for aquatic items like surfboards.
The “corknnected” boards are made with only natural cork. They’re assembled into honeycomb-like hexagonal shapes, and then glued together with a combination of pine resin and beeswax. A finish made from natural fibers and bioresins completes the process.
The resulting boards carry on a tradition of natural-material use by surfers, and make great conversation pieces too.
