Cork at the Istanbul Design Biennial


An event made possible due to a partnership with Corticeira Amorim, the exclusive sponsor of all cork used in the event.The overall exhibition space is therefore enhanced by the presence of cork, used in numerous innovative and creative items, such as lighting and furniture.

"As a material that immediately gives a sensation of warmth and personality though highly engineered, cork complements perfectly the theme of the exhibition - The future is not what it used to be." Gregers Tang Thomsen, founder and lead architect of the architecture firm, Superpool.

Organised by the Istanbul Foundation for Culture and Arts (IKSV) the Biennial opened on November 1, 2014. Over its 6-week duration, it will be a privileged platform for rethinking the role of design in contemporary society and its potential as an active agent for change.
