CorkWirl is a wall panel with generative patterns inspired by biomimetic structures. Twirl movements generate organic and fluid shapes. The low-tech material of sustainable cork granulate is produced in a natural high-tech process in the course of which water vapour is injected through pellets using high pressure, creating a wide variety of shapes and patterns by means of algorithms. In addition, this attractive panel has excellent thermal and acoustic properties.
