CORKBRICK story started in April 2012 at a Lisbon's airport coffee shop, on a trip to Casablanca... a conversation between father (serial entrepreneur) and daughter (future architect) about flexibility in home spaces.
"We were discussing solutions for open spaces, specifically searching for ideas to create a dynamic guest room in our attic. We needed something simple, scalable, easy to mount and dismount - and most importantly without the use of tools, glues, or screws!"
That was when we first thought of the potential behind a modular construction such as the CORKBRICK concept and designed the first sketches. Ten days later, already back home from Morocco, we resumed our brainstorming and explored the global market to find that nothing fulfilled our imagination's criteria! There was no concept available with easy modularity and flexibility to build structures and furniture at home for people, such as us, who are hopeless at DIY (Do It Yourself).
This was the origin of CORKBRICK!
