Modularity for a creative home

Our missions is bringing creativity and nature into your life.

Multiple configurations and formats give the user the possibilites to co-create and re-arrange the shape of their furnitures easily without any extra tools.

Design process

Como was developed within the framework of Amorim Cork Ventures, a programme supporting entrepreneurs and startups looking for new businesses and solutions with cork.

After the prototyping phase at Fablab Lisboa first contacts with potential clients and design focus groups in order to get some feedback were made. Como took part at selected exhibitions like the Vienna Design Week 2015, Greenfest and Makerfair Lisbon.

Assembling guide

The single elements – called them “Nuuk” (angle) and “Foot”(base) will be connected with straps and wooden pins. The straps close with a velcro-fastening and contain an aluminium inlay to reforce the connection.

The complete Como set comes in a backpack including 12 cork elements & 48 connectors  in order to assemble five different variations of the modules.
