TIMELY MEETINGS

As a regular MAISON&OBJET exhibitor, Gencork’s cork panels cover hotel and office walls throughout Europe.

This cork is different from others: Gencork’s 100% natural, expanded cork agglomerate is transformed into wall panels thanks to algorithms: the association of a low-tech material and the latest digital processes.

As a perfect insulation, Gencork cork is also a surface for spectacular textured motifs. For Brimet Silva, director of the design department, “MAISON&OBJET is an extraordinary place for meetings between brands and architects. They happen naturally, even more so when a brand, like ours, has a strong aesthetic. This creates an immediate link between the two parties.”

The innovative, seductive cork products from the Portuguese company are today integrated in many international hotel, restaurant and office projects since the brand is always attentive to architects. “Architects might order a custom-made product or make tiny modifications to motifs in our existing collections. We can modify these quickly thanks to our digital processes and flexible production. These relationships with architects are, for us, an excellent occasion to improve our design and manufacturing processes.” For Brimet Silva there is no doubt: “Most of the projects initiated after a meeting at MAISON&OBJET become very interesting work opportunities.”
