As we are all living in the 21st century, where going as green as possible is not only recommended but vital for our planet, it’s quite refreshing coming into contact with professionals out to make a difference. One such example is the experts over at Go4cork who have zoomed in on the amazing functionality and benefits of a very simple material: cork.
With its noticeable texture and visually pleasing style, cork is becoming one of the most creative and practical materials in the design- and construction industries. Aside from helping to reduce noise levels and up interior insulation, cork can also make quite the difference in terms of visual aesthetics.
Today, we are taking a look at how Go4cork is using this resourceful material to make a difference in the home and office and, in the process, contributing to a more balanced and sustainable world!
Using cork to manufacture cups and other receptacles is nothing new. However, modern-day designers and inventors have gone a few steps further to make cork an ever-loving presence in the home.
Take the kitchen, for example. Known as working zone, a kitchen is prone to both hot- and cold surfaces – both of which can negatively affect those prime furniture pieces you’ve painstakingly added to your interiors over the years. But thanks to cork, more practical and elegant accessories have become available for use around the kitchen – more specifically, at that dining table. And all this while taking minimal environmental impact into consideration.
With Go4cork, you can protect your table (and other surfaces) with a range of coasters, trivets, trays, placemats, and various other elements – all constructed from cork, of course, to ensure insulated, lightweight, and waterproof pieces to stylish co-exist with your home’s existing accessories. Cork’s natural, neutral color will immediately complement any home’s style while blending in with those table decorations.
Aiding in the appeal of Go4cork’s products is the fact that its range includes various options in terms of shapes, thicknesses, and dimensions. That means that should you require some decent coasters, for instance, you can enjoy prime pickings from numerous variations for not only your kitchen, but also other areas where drinks can be enjoyed like the living room or home bar.
Of course cork, in all its fantastic variations, also helps to up your interiors’ visual appeal in the form of décor. Take trays, for instance: available in a wide range of sizes and shapes, cork trays can ensure a serious dose of practicality and style anywhere in your home.
But don’t discount the visual appeal of trivets, placemats, and any of the other aforementioned examples to complement your crockery, increase your dining table design, or simply just add to your home’s aesthetics.
How about using cork for your office’s mouse pad or computer base? Thanks to Go4cork that is not only possible, but you are able to choose the pieces that protect your mouse, computer, and desk from a wealth of cork options.
Any office, whether it’s a home office (study) or in a corporate environment, needs to be as practical as possible. That means a variety of elements to speed along productivity. Well, even here cork makes its appearance in the form of memo boards, among other examples.
These cork memo boards are as versatile, easy to install, and easy to use, however you have the added advantage of knowing you are contributing to the environment by lessening your (and your company’s) carbon footprint.
Want to zhoosh up your memo board in terms of design? Or simply just add some wall art to your office environment? Again, cork comes to rescue the day with these fantastic world maps that allow you to mark the countries you have visited (or still plan to), fulfill the role of a most unique memo board, or just add to your home’s accessory range!
