The Corkigami Chair Combines a Cork Material with a Chair Design

Designer Carlos Ortega created the Corkigami Chair, which combines cork material with a simple (yet modern) chair design. This comfortable chair has taken a traditionally flat material and folded it up (in an origami fashion) into a sleek looking seat.

Consumers might initially have doubts about whether or not cork makes for reliable furniture pieces, but as it turns out it's both strong and flexible, which makes it ideal for chairs. When friends take a load off in the Corkigami Chair, home owners can rest easy knowing that these stylish chairs won't buckle.

Though the legs of this chair are oak, and not cork, the color of the cork cushion matches the shade of the wooden chair legs. This seating solution is aesthetically pleasing and guaranteed to impress.
