Brazilian duo The Campana Brothers launched a new collection called Sobreiro that includes one armchair and three cabinets made of cork.

According to Humberto Campana, cork was used because it is an ecological material that is also light. The Sobreiro collection's furniture range is available in various colors, shape and textures. Some pieces are made in an espresso-brown dark cork, others in natural cork, and some even in an experimental hybrid of cork and clay.

In terms of texture, one cabinet is rendered in wavelike pattern and another looks like it is made out of pebbles.
