Korkad  Bicycle saddle , 2012  In cooperation with Carl Cyrén   Korkad is created on the basis of the specific properties of the material cork - both the functional and visual.  The bicycle saddle highlights some of cork’s properties, such as elasticity, impermeability, recyclability and durability. To get a more protective surface, the saddle is treated with hard wax oil. The treatment enhances the cork texture and gives a satin-like, warm feel. The natural, lively texture tends to make scratches and small marks disappear. Instead of destroying the material, they will become a part of its natural look.  Material: cork  Prototype. Not in production.  Photo: Petter Brandt
