During a one week workshop with Pedrita Studio sponsored by Portuguese cork company Amorim, participants had the chance to explore and play with cork.
Plagued by a wasp infestation we were inspired by cork’s original function of sealing containers. Playing around with different shapes and material combinations, we created a set of playful lids which turn into spinning tops when not in use. Making use of cork’s insulating properties the spinning tops not only protected our drinks from wasps but also kept them cool.
In collaboration with Kimahni Emsley.
