Japanese-Portuguese duo Ryosuke Fukusada and Rui Pereira used renewable Portuguese cork to create their ‘Bug Collection’ of multifunctional furniture, which is now on show at this year’s Milan Design Week. The pieces beautifully blend the Japanese bent for minimalism with warm, renewable materials.

The Bug Collection features racks for hanging towels, compartments for soap, marine sponges and a cute bathroom-friendly plant. The cork has been delicately modeled like a Japanese geta. Not only does it provide support for the bath products, but it is waterproof, renewable and boasts hypoallergenic qualities.

    It will take a lot for me to think of using cork to build much with. I have built many things with wood, but never with cork.
