SIX by James Irvine

newest member of Amorim's MATERIA collection
"The natural spirit of the cork is a perfect starting point: it allows you to explore new forms for everyday needs." This is how James Irvine, the late great British industrial designer, described cork. SIX, one of his final works, was specially designed for wine lovers and collectors, enabling bottles to be stored, displayed and carried. Curated by ExperimentaDesign for Corticeira Amorim, the MATERIA collection consists of a collection of cork objects for everyday use designed by BIG-GAME (CH), Daniel Caramelo (PT), Fernando Brízio (PT), Filipe Alarcão (PT), Inga Sempé (FR), Marco Sousa Santos (PT), Miguel Vieira Baptista (PT), Nendo (JP), Pedrita (PT), Raw Edges (IL/UK) and James Irvine Srl (UK).
