Japanese-Portuguese duo Ryosuke Fukusada [1] and Rui Pereira [2] used renewable Portuguese cork to create their ‘Bug Collection’ of multifunctional furniture, which is now on show at this year’s Milan Design Week [3]. 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 [4] has been delicately modeled like a Japanese geta [5]. Not only does it provide support for the bath products, but it is waterproof, renewable and boasts hypoallergenic qualities.
