Colorful and bohemian design designed by Granorte for Materials Village.
The natural colors of the Recolour Two flooring collection blend with the shades of wood from the Vita collection and the lively decorations typical of the Portuguese azulejos reproduced as a natural cork tattoo.
And then, as in an artist’s studio, 3D effect coatings and pigmented black bark, tribute to Italian artist Alberto Burri and his cuttings.
Stools and cork lamps complete the scene.
Cork manifests its characteristics, in a spontaneous action, like nature, like art.
Granorte has a range of products in cork, a material it has been developing since 1972 through an eco-efficient process. In fact, since then, Granorte products are created from post-industrial recycled natural cork from the wine bottle stopper manufacturers, supported by a continuous commitment with research and development.
With far-sightedness, Granorte joins innovation and tradition as its corporate strength, successfully combining modern production know-how with a culture rooted in history. And it believes in the wisdom of a natural, time-honoured but renewed material.
As a noble material, cork is born with three precious qualities: lightness, water-resistance and insulation (acoustic as well as thermal). Also, it possesses notable sensorial and emotional characteristics: it is comfortable, warm, and pleasant to the touch. Furthermore, it is durable and does not absorb dust; it is resistant to fungus and bacteria and causes no allergies. So, all these assets make it a truly versatile material, perfect for use in interior architecture and floorings.
Founded 40 years ago, GRANORTE is a world-wide leading company in the design, development and manufacture of sustainable coverings with cork.
Selling to more than 60 countries around the world, it offers a thrilling and environmentally responsible range of cork, wood, linoleum and leather floorings.
Our motto, “Delivering Nature” clearly defines what we do, meaning that GRANORTE’s products will contribute to the basis of a new culture of sustainable design and construction that will bring Nature closer to man’s living.
GRANORTE recognizes that business leadership carries a responsibility to the environment and the world’s forests. We contribute to the development of environmental solutions that conserve, protect and restore forests, supporting responsible forest management practices that both protect biodiversity and ecosystem integrity and result in long-term social and economic benefits to human communities.
