Cork Kit – Combined Small is the original modular system designed by Amanda Levete, comprised of 2 Big modules and 2 Small modules. The piece exploits the natural characteristics of cork by emphasising its lightness and colour tonalities to create a modular, self-supporting assembly system. The tonal range is expressed as a gradient running from light to dark, laminating the sheets of cork together before making an oblique cut to expose the rich depth of colour variation. A semicircular hole reduces the weight of the pieces, allows light through and increases the surface area for sound absorption. The geometry of the two modules is designed to be interlocking and self-supporting. Light enough to be lifted by one person, each module can be arranged in multiple configurations, to be used as a partition, a screen, sound proofing or occasional furniture.
