The Cork Floor is IN!!!
Our studio is laid with a 100% natural cork flooring which is one of nature´s most renewable resources.


Here are some interesting facts on Cork…

Hypoallergenic: Unlike carpet, Cork is a 100% Natural product and tends to repel dust, hair, and other small particles from its surface. The material is also easier to get completely clean. Because of this, cork floors tend to promote higher indoor air quality.

Antimicrobial Properties: Cork contains a waxy substance called Suberin. This material has the property of naturally repelling small vermin and insects. This makes cork floors resistant to the growth and colonization of these organisms as well as mold, mildew & viruses. Therefore it can help to promote the healthiness of an environment.

Insulation : Cork is made up of millions of tiny geometric prism shaped air-pockets and with air being one of the best insulators it helps make cork not only a great thermal insulator for hot and cold but as well as a great acoustical sound insulation helping soften the ambiance of a room.

Fire Resistant : Cork is a fire inhibitor that does not spread flame and Cork will not produce toxic gases on combustion making it safer for the indoor environment.

Comfort : The inherent resiliency of cork’s prism shaped cellular structure provides a comfortable cushion that is gentle on feet, back and joints. Also with cork flooring walking barefoot on a cold day doesn’t have to be a unpleasant experience as it’s naturally “warming”.

Sustainability :   Cork is harvested from the renewable bark of the cork oak tree and is one of the most sustainable materials available. Cork trees are not killed or damaged in the harvest of the wood since only the outer bark is “trimmed” which then grows back completely time and again to allow the cork tree to remain living. A cork oak can live for up to 500 years with an average lifespan of 200 years. Harvesting occurs once every nine years and the final product is 100% fully recyclable and biodegradable.
