With Corcrete, Design Studio Niruk has developed a new material for interior design. A symbiosis of elements: soft meets hard, flexible meets rigidly. Corcrete is a composite of natural cork and concrete. The texture is warm and pleasant to the touch. Corcrete is durable, resilient and versatile. Properties that inspired Studio Niruk to also use the material in furniture design.
Curiosity and a passion for materials are the drivers that fuel Nina Ruthe and David Antonin’s development process: on request, Corcrete is available in tile format and in customised designs. The studio is also open for joint projects with manufacturers and for conceptual advancement of the material. Currently, Corcrete is available in three colours: white, grey and black.
In 2016, Corcrete received both the Green Product Award and the Interieur Award.
