Evad had an epiphany in 2006. He'd been working with cork for 15 years and realized that if it could be made denser; the products he could invent with it would be limitless. By the summer of 2007, Evad had found a process that made it possible. He immediately started designing cutting boards out of cork and supplying them to retailers. Never one to stop after a sale is made; Evad continues to come up with new product designs. He works much like his historical hero, Leonardo da Vinci, by creating the designs organically, without the aid of computers. Evad continues to traverse the globe to find inspiration in other cultures. If he comes across a piano in his travels, he sits, closes his eyes, and plays for hours—what he's playing, no one knows, but it sounds good and it actually looks like he knows what he's doing.
Pop a Cork
There's more than one way for a bottle of wine to help you relax and savor the moment. Take the humble cork, so often overlooked, forgotten and discarded. But now, wine corks are getting a whole new life outside the bottleneck with these charming bistro stools. A wine connoisseur's delight, they are created using corks collected from restaurants, grocery stores and businesses around the country.
The column of each stool is composed of 100% repurposed and recycled corks—more than 2,300 corks are used in each piece, sealed into place using a special glue and 100 tons of pressure. The top and bottom are capped with a circle of structural cork, which provides a smooth surface to sit on while protecting your floors. The stools are water-safe and mold-resistant, making them safe to use outdoors. Whether you place one in a sunny nook, gather several around a patio table, or use one as a delicious accent table or plant stand, you'll find yourself savoring your decor in a whole new way. Made in Chicago.
