“Rolha”, (Portuguese for the cork stopper used in wine bottles), is a
side table, inspired by the uncorking of a fine wine, designed by
Gonçalo Campos.

This table is composed by very simple elements. A solid, turned cork top and 3 turned wood legs, fitted with a screw, similar to the ones used to uncork traditional wine bottles.

Cork is a very special material with qualities that make it perfect for a wide range of technical applications, while being environmentally sustainable, reason why it has seen a great appreciation in the last few years.

By simply twisting the legs in the cork top (in a very familiar motion), this table can easily be assembled without any tools. Thanks to the amazing mechanical properties of cork, this elementary action is enough to keep the table sturdy and stable.

Most of its harvesting and production is also based in Portugal, because of the particularly favourable climate to it's growth, and the deep tradition in using cork in the most incredible applications; inspiring rituals and tools that have been kept through generations.
