A Lego-like sustainable furniture system such as CORKBRICK has several positive aspects and some of them include:
Flexibility: A Lego-like system allows for a high degree of flexibility in terms of design and functionality. The modular nature of the system allows for easy customization, and the ability to easily reconfigure or add to the furniture as needs change.
“The measure of intelligence is the ability to change.” ― Albert Einstein
Durability: The Lego-like system is likely to be made with durable and long-lasting materials in this case cork, as the ability to disassemble and reassemble the furniture means that it will be less likely to be damaged and easily remodelled if slightly damaged.
"Nature, which makes nothing durable, always repeats itself so that nothing which it makes may be lost." ― Oscar Wilde
Sustainability: As the furniture is modular, it allows for a more sustainable use of cork, as parts can be replaced or repurposed rather than needing to replace the entire piece of furniture. The ability to repurpose and recycle the cork used to make the furniture would also help to minimize waste.
"If it can't be reduced, reused, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled or composted, then it should be restricted, redesigned or removed from production." ― Pete Seeger
Cost-effective: As the modular furniture can be easily reconfigured and added to, it could be a cost-effective option for home and business owners, as it would be less necessary to purchase new furniture over time.
"By making offers Modular, the business can create and improve each offer in isolation, then mix and match offers as necessary to better serve their customers. It's like playing with LEGOS: once you have a set of pieces to work with, you can put them together in all sorts of interesting ways." ― Josh Kaufman
Transport and Assembly: Modular furniture is generally easier to transport, and Corkbrick Lego-like modular system would be more so, as it is less space-consuming and can be disassembled and reassembled with ease.
"It always seems impossible until it's done." ― Nelson Mandela
Educational: The concept of modular furniture allows for the idea of deconstruction and reconstruction to be taught in a fun and interactive way that could be of educational benefit to both children and adults.
"Education is the foundation upon which we build our future." ― Christine Gregoire
Creativity: A lego-like system allows for creativity, as it encourages users to think of new ways to configure the furniture, and also gives them the freedom to come up with new designs that suit their needs and preferences.
"Creativity involves putting your imagination to work. In a sense, creativity is applied imagination. ―Ken Robinson
Recycling and Composting: Corkbrick has clear instructions on how to recycle and compost each brock if necessary. We make sure that the recycling and composting is possible while available and easy to access.
"If recycling is the future, then we must focus our efforts on mitigating negative impacts to our community while protecting our environment." ― Tony Cardenas
