Chicago’s Studio 1a.m. in ReadyMade

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Cork has some serious power, and really, we think there’s nothing not to love. The current issue of ReadyMade is the Green Design issue (Apr/May 2008) and you can bet it’s packed with eco-goodness. Four of the six cork designs shown here are by Chicago design duo Studio 1a.m. who won an honorable mention at last year’s Modern + Design + Function exhibition.

Their cork ideas for this issue include #2, 4, 5 and 6 shown here: boat trays, table runner with candlestick cutouts, napkin rings, and woven coasters. All fantastic in function and style, we’d say the table runner is equal parts the most simple and the most surprising.
