Sustainable design brand

  • The brand

    Cork Units is a portuguese design brand created by the third generation of a cork family company. Our aim is to design contemporary and functional products made of cork, highlighting its natural beauty, texture and shade variation.Cork is the main material of Cork Units' collections, sometimes combined with other materials. Cork Units' products are designed and produced in Portugal.

  • Sustainable design

    The brand is engaged in developing sustainable and eco-friendly products. With a minimal level of transformation, the cork keeps most of its original properties, resulting in products with a low environmental footprint.

  • Cork

    Cork is a natural, recyclable and sustainable material. It is a 100% natural plant based tissue.The cork tree has a long lifetime, around 200 years and it has an enormous regeneration capacity. The plant natural habitat is in the southern region of Portugal and Mediterranean countries. The harvest process has to be made respecting a period of 9 years.

  • Motto

    Taking as a motto 'natural things belong together', Cork Units intention is to be a conscious design brand with a new look on cork singularity and its integration in contemporary way of living.
