Cork was invented by Dom Perignon, a famous French monk, in the 1600s. His name may sound familiar to those of us who have had a chance to sip his namesake French Champagne. Dom Perignon was the first to have fitted his Champagne with Cork and it has remained one of the staples in the wine industry ever since. Yet, Cork is no longer solely reserved for Champagne corks, wine bottle corks or cork flooring. One of the most eco-friendly and naturally supplied materials, Cork is making a breakthrough a new base material for a variety of fashionable furniture applications. Cork is a readily available material, it is renewable, sustainable and environmentally sound. Cork is an inherently natural resource, being both renewable and biodegrable. Cork is harvested from the bark of Cork Oak Tree and contrary to popular belief, Cork Oak Trees do not need to be cut down in order to produce cork.



One of the latest and most notable pieces of modern furniture design is Jasper Morrison's Cork Stool available through Stardust. These attractive cork stools were designed by British designer Jasper Morrison and can be used as a side table, stool or ottoman. Robustly built, stable and individual in character, the attractive Cork Stools are truly timeless. The Cork Stools was designed by Jasper Morrison for Moooi in the Netherlands. The Jasper Morrison Cork Stools are turned from agglomerate cork, a naturally sound choice since cork has several advantages: cork is a warm material thanks to its great thermal values, it is naturally waterproof and enormously tough. These Cork Stools are therefore perfect for a variety of applications, use them in the living room, bathroom, day spa, etc.. These attractive Cork Stools will compliment any interior. Select from either a low or tall version. The Cork Stools feature a small engraved plate with the Moooi logo and the name of the designer Jasper Morrison on the underside.
