jasper morrison has designed a limited edition furniture collection, which has been realized entirely in cork. morrison’s longstanding interest in the materiel stems from its functionality as well as its inherent atmospheric qualities. developed by the cork oak tree as a protective covering, this particular iteration of the material is reconstituted from unselected wine bottle corks — some still visible in their original shape.

jasper morrison’s collection of cork furniture, which comprises a chaise longue, chairs, stools, bookshelves, and even a fireplace, will be presented as part of a exhibition at kasmin’s 297 tenth avenue space in new york. the show will be on view between may 9 – june 28, 2019, coinciding with NYCxDESIGN 2019 — the city’s annual celebration of design. ‘as limited editions, these pieces mark a departure from the designer’s usual methods of industrial production and initiate a new collaborative partnership that speaks to kasmin’s continued engagement with presenting boundary-pushing work at the intersection of art and design,’ says the gallery.

in 2015, jasper morrison designed a cork-clad hut for japanese retail company MUJI. conceived as a small retreat for simple, country living, ‘cork hut’ was elevated above ground level with a timber porch that wrapped around all sides. internally, the space functioned as a place to cook, eat, wash, and sleep. a japanese-influenced living space served as the communal area with a fireplace, while a kitchen and a dining area were also included.
