PIASA – PARIS 10TH DECEMBER 2020
Made out of cork, Dora coffee table by @giselasimasdesign.
With contemporary lines, made from cork (@amorimcorkcomposites), the Dora coffee table has an innovative, practical and highly original construction, conveying a great feeling of softness.
This incredible table was first presented at Milan Design week 2018, and since then has been making huge success in several exhibitions. In Milan, Berlin, London and Barcelona, visitors have compared the table to architectonic constructions with Brazilian modernism lines. “Sustainable materials are the future. Cork is not only sustainable, it has a wonderful color and a natural touch. My works mirror my perspective on design, which has to be high quality and use environmentally friendly materials, backed by cutting-edge production technologies”, explained Gisela Simas when she designed Dora coffee table.
Dora is produced in Portugal by the furniture company Época, whose client portfolio includes Álvaro Siza Vieira and Philippe Stark.
The CONGONHAS product line – consisting of a coffee table, fruit bowl and a lamp – is inspired by the wing of a Boeing 737-800 jet, and aims to convey a sense of continuous movement.
