Albertina Oliveira Shows The Ayers Cork Table, Chair, Luminaire

Albertina Oliveira, the thinktank behind the highlighted project Table, chair, luminaire. by Albertina Oliveira explains, The shape and the unity of the object, combined with the innovative use of materials in the production as cork and "corkbalt" are unique factors that distinguish this piece from the others. Each chair is sculpted on a high technology CNC machine from a single block of cork. The same method is applied to the base of the table. The tabletop and the campanula of the luminaire are made of "corkbalt" (an innovative material that combines the basalt fiber with cork) which gives a lightness to the pieces. The lamp uses LED technology in its lighting system..
