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.
