Cork is such a versatile material that it can be used in a surprising number of applications. The Magic Boxes Shelving from Rui Pereira is a set of wall shelves made of stylish cork that are more than they first appear.
At first glance, the floating cork shelves look a bit like stones on the wall. Get a bit closer, however, and the softer, spongy texture of the cork becomes visible. Each shelf opens to reveal a small storage space inside.
The unique material makes the small storage containers look like natural features that belong on a cave wall. In the home, they look like sophisticated pieces of interactive, functional art.
