Korek użyty do produkcji mebli

Korek zrobiony jest z zewnętrznej kory wieczniezielonego dębu korkowego. The life cycle of cork, as a raw material, starts with the extraction of the bark from cork oaks. The so-called harvesting or stripping, which is carried out during the most active stage in the annual growth of the cork occurs from mid-May or early June to the end of August.

But it is, above all, a material that is one hundred per cent natural, recyclable and reusable, essential qualities in a more environmentally friendly and less polluted modern society.

  • 33% of the world’s total area of cork oak forest is concentrated in Portugal!
  • It takes 45 years to reap the highest quality cork.
  • Cork trees can be harvest every 9 years (producing around 45 Kg of good quality cork).
  • It can be harvest around 16 times during its life.

    the brand

    We are proud to present to you a new brand of Portuguese furniture design. It is the project of a young team who believe in the values of cultural and Portuguese traditions giving them a new interpretation through the design of unique pieces. The main legacy is the family connection of this team to one of the greatest icons of Portuguese design of the 50’s, the Gonçalo chair from Arcalo, which still remains the main image in Portuguese emblematic outdoor spaces. No less important is the cultural heritage and passion of this young team. The industry’s treatment of cork and wood combine advanced technology with ancient methods, all with the purpose of sourcing the exclusive materials. These two heritages make AROUND THE TREE an original brand that is distinguished for having the perfect combination of the two elements in their DNA, design and nature.

    We present to you; the new Portuguese brand AROUNDtheTREE – Natural Design.
