We collaborate with Elisava in the subject Product Technology III

The students of Degree in Design and of Degree in Industrial Design Engineering from'Elisava School have designed products made with cork and have also produced the final prototypes. The main objective of the subject is to introduce and understand design by reinterpreting a raw material, understanding its properties, unique characteristics and their processes.

The Catalan Institute of Cork Foundation has collaborated with Elisava giving the introductory lesson at the beginning of the subject on cork and its possibilities in the world of design in accordance with the foundation's vocation to train and disseminate cork as a material.

Strap, Alejandro Linares, Tomás Cano.

Strap takes advantage of this growing transformation of work environments and is based on the so-called "ephemeral comfort"; which presents the possibility of generating new spaces without the need for them to be permanent and in this way, to provide these spaces with greater freedom and flexibility.

It is designed in such a way as to allow its users to very simply install a micro area of rest and personal comfort. In addition, its morphology also allows it to be stored flat almost without taking up space in the environment in which it is placed.


Cork Away, Raul Gaya, Guillem Sánchez.

With the current situation, there are many restaurants that find themselves with the need to provide takeaway food, including Michelin star restaurants. These have changed the delivery system, trying to emulate the sensory experience of the restaurant, but at home. For this reason, we provide a solution through cork and its properties.


La Surera, Nils Kamming, Liam Kelly.

Designed to improve user comfort in the face of the physical and metaphorical harshness of urban space. The cork backpack focuses on the act of sitting, responding to the dirt, material hardness or thermal contrast of the different surfaces of the urban furniture in our cities. In this way, it incorporates a support made of cork, which, in addition to offering the backpack an ergonomic profile, allows, thanks to its zippers, to be separated to be used as a mat and to be able to sit at any time and place improving comfort.
