THE PORTUGUESE FURNITURE EDITOR
JOINS THE 1.618 GUIDE SELECTION
Awarded the People’s Choice Award, the young brand made quite an impression during 1.618 Sustainable Luxury 2014.
Last April at Le Carreau du Temple, 1.618 Sustainable Luxury welcomed the design brand Blackcork, born from the collaboration of designer Toni Grilo and the Portuguese company Sofalca, specialized in cork materials.

Its vocation is to sublimate an ecological material with an innovative and elegant design.
The only raw material used is the cork-oak bark, which is milled and then condensed in an autoclave. This 100% natural process gives the cork a chocolate tone, which is a special feature of the brand.
The innovative design of the Cut Chair and O Stool has greatly attracted the visitors of 1.618 Sustainable Luxury, and Blackcork was awarded the 2014 People’s Choice Award. It is thus quite natural that the brand chose to join the 1.618 Guide, in which it continues to tell its story, processes and news to our audience!
