    PRODUCT WATCH: Granorte launches vingtage-style cork wall tile collection

    Groovy is the latest cork wall tile from cork innovator Granorte, bringing a stylish vintage edge to contemporary spaces…

    Made entirely from 100 per cent post-industrial recycled cork, Groovy’s linear design is CNC grooved into its face then dyed in one of seven colours, or as an all-over treatment in the super cool look of Groovy Night.

    Building a hexagonal motif across the wall, Groovy’s air of retro is equally balanced by cork’s natural aesthetic for a look that feels entirely modern. Treated with Granorte’s water-based Corkguard finish for protection from stains, Groovy is suitable for residential and commercial interior projects. In a 600mm x 300mm glue-on format CNC machined from agglomerated cork, the tile contributes to improved acoustics, insulates against heat loss and is simple to maintain.

    “Groovy is one of those designs that’s deceptively simple and fiendishly difficult to achieve well,” explains Paulo Rocha, product and development manager for the Portuguese company. “We went through several iterations of the design before we got it working and the pattern looking sophisticated and not pastiche. We’re super-pleased how it’s worked out and we’re looking forward to seeing Groovy used in some beautiful interiors.”

    Granorte has been innovating in cork since 1972 and remains a family-run company to this day. Investing heavily in technology has allowed the company to create cork floor and wall products, alongside other innovative applications for the material including NuSpa sanitary ware, the recently launched Moon coffee table and more.

    Groovy is the latest in a range of sculpted and formed wall tiles including 3DForms, Modular, Bebop and Tatami and the raw bark of RustiCork.
