These Lucky Side Tables are Made from Sustainable Materials
Most manufacturers are still striving to achieve carbon neutral. That makes it even more impressive that the current favorite material of design practice Grain is carbon negative, i.e. climate positive.
Cork, rapidly renewable and totally biodegradable, sequesters carbon from the air as it grows. It’s what is used to make Clover, a series of side and coffee tables produced at Grain’s studio in Bainbridge Island, Washington.
The pieces are inspired by a four-leaf clover, a shape favored by cofounders Chelsea and James Minola for its organic simplicity. They use both premium cork, the familiar light-colored kind, and a rarer chocolate-brown version, which has been saved from the waste stream by toasting it to hide imperfections. Through Colony.
