A sun-blocking vintage for your windows: Laser-cut Alight cork blinds

October 10, 2009|Kristin Hohenadel

You've probably seen cork flooring, perhaps cork tabletops too. But cork blinds? At 100% Design London, the annual contemporary architecture and interiors extravaganza held two weeks ago, the material turned up in the booth of the textile collective Puff & Flock. Designer Jo Angell had created the laser-cut Alight cork blinds decorated with the shapes of birds, leaves, acorns -- the elements of a cork forest. It's a design that "aims to raise the profile of cork with an elegant and tactile product," Angell said.
