I designed this Cork Wall Installation for my Interior Materials class, and it is one of my favorite deign pieces because it is a fusion of renewable materials and creative innovation. The goal of this project, was to design an interior wall installation using everyday materials, preferably renewable. The wine corks used in this piece were donated by a local Cincinnati winery. I started the design process by sorting the corks based on how dark the wine had stained them. The darkest corks run along the four circles, and the lighter corks disperse among them. The incorporation of foam ads a contrasting non-renewable element. Ironically, this material is re-used in this installation the same way the wine corks are used. This adds contrast to the installation, and completes the over-all feel of it.
