The "Silhouette" is a set that takes us to the vastness of the sea horizon through 5 cork profiles that represent the contour of the landscape and 10 wooden animals.
The profiles have modular dimensions that allow various compositions, such as a long horizon, a compact area, or many other regular or random shapes creating a wildlife habitat to be explored by the animals.
As the “Animal Box”, the “Silhouette” represents the animal world through its stylized shapes that combined with the use of natural materials and their expressive qualities provide strong visual stimuli. Agglomerated cork and sycamore wood have a smooth and warm touch, as well as a fine and homogenous texture, providing a unique sensory experience.
Portuguese agglomerated cork - Amorim Cork Composites (FSC - and PEFC - certified).
European sycamore wood (acer pseudoplatanus) or european beech (fagus sylvatica) both PEFC - certified.
Cork and wood are natural and unfinished.
Cork and wood are fully biodegradable, renewable and recyclable materials. Cork oak forests are one of the 35 most important ecosystems in the planet and the sycamore tree is originally from Europe, where it has been cultivated for centuries, attracting bees, butterflies, birds and small mammals, as well as the beech, whose fruits feeds various animals.
Because wood is a natural material it has a non-uniform appearance (veins, knots and other marks) and it may present different white/grey and yellow/golden shades. Therefore, wooden products may present slight variations when compared to the ones on the pictures.
The “Silhouette” should not be handled by young children without adult supervision. The animals have thin parts, such as legs and tails, which may break if improperly handled.
