Cork's been popped, champagne's been drunk— why not build a reclaimed cork chair? If this seems like a middle-of the-night brainstorm of some drunken college student or half-hearted diy-er who lives above a bar, it's not. It's a new bar stool by Phase Design's founder Reza Feiz…
The amount of skill and design perspective that go into making the Life After Corkage stool is quite serious.
The piece is created by Phase Design's founder Reza Feiz. Rescuing thousands of corks that would otherwise be in landfills to complete just one piece, Feiz places well over 2,500 wine and champagne corks in a breathable mesh cap, which can be placed or removed from its steel base. The eco-friendly piece is also mufti-functional, as it can be used as an ottoman, stool or side table. The final look of the stool has a transitional, training-wheel character— revealing something of a tacky bachelor baby-stepping his way into having taste and a conscience.
