As far as innovative and eco-friendly design goes, the Becki Chan ‘Corky’ project might be one of the most creative. Designer Becki Chan has upcycled hundreds of wasted cork wine stoppers to create a floor lamp and table for the home.

The Becki Chan ‘Corky’ project comprises a 2-in-1 furniture piece made from cork, which, due to its inconsistent density, was a hard material to manipulate and work with, describes the designer. The Corky piece is actually a combined table and floor lamp offering the user a multifunctional home decor and furniture accent. According to Chan, “It can be thought of as a side table, night stand or floor lamp.” The table itself also features an elegant chessboard surface.
