A renewable and sustainable resource, cork (the outer bark of the Cork Oak tree) regenerates itself for harvest every 9-10 years. Cork must be harvested regularly to ensure sustained health for the orchard. Because the highest priority during harvest is to protect the health of the tree, the tools and processes used are virtually the same as they were hundreds of years ago. The cork forests of the Mediterranean are thriving, and the material is in plentiful supply. The Cub Chairs are made in the U.S. using 100% reclaimed waste material from the production of cork bottle-stoppers. In addition, the material is completely recyclable. Waste from the production of these chairs is re-used for making more material. Nothing is wasted in cork production processes. Cork is a perfect material for children. It is soft yet durable. It is wonderfully tactile and completely non-toxic. It is naturally water-resistant and impervious to mold and bacteria growth. It can be easily cleaned using soap and water. It will play along with any game and listen to every story. The Cub chair is sure to be any child’s best friend. Note: This Item is made-to-order and non-returnable.

DMFD's work focuses on researching and expanding the uses of underutilized, unconventional material. Investigation of new materials can only lead to innovative methods of production and new ways of interacting with our environment. DMFD's recent work taps the rich potential of cork, an engaging, environmentally responsible material which is completely sustainable, recyclable, and plentiful. With this new work he has tried to explore the deep potential of this wonderfully tactile material, making it do things that only it can do.
