Cork Lounge Chair

Here I wanted to explore using rolled cork that is usually used for floor underpayment. Using lamination methods ,traditionally for creating plywoods, I exploited the natural flexibility of cork and it's non-grain nature to complete complex curves of a lounge chair.

To give more structure to the cork I laminated 2 layers of canvas to keep the cork from tearing. The flexibility of the cork and canvas allow for there to be added flexibility in the seat.


Each leg was cut into 1/3's, glued back together, turned, bent, and then glued back together creating a splayed split leg look.
