Brooklyn-based designer Daniel Michalik has designed the beautiful, jaw-dropping Cortica Chaise Lounge. This piece of art is made of 100% reclaimed cork discarded from the bottle-stopper industry and non-toxic marine grade adhesive (okay, and a small amount of polyurethane!) Cork is renewable material, lightweight, naturally waterproof and even buoyant! It is also impervious to rot and mold, so can be used for years to come.
