    Product watch: make more of your walls with Modular by Granorte

    Modular is a 3D tile from cork pioneer Granorte that brings Mondrian linearity to walls…

    Using CNC machined linear grooves in three geometric designs, Modular lets you explore the forms typified by Piet Mondrian’s works on walls. Installed in combinations and arrangements, the large format cork tiles create an aesthetic that balances natural elements with manmade form.

    Each lightweight Modular tile is made from 100 per cent recycled cork, a by-product of the wine stopper industry and retains the acoustic and thermal benefits of the material. Helping spaces feel warmer and quieter, cork is an ideal renewable natural material for wall and floor finishes.

    Available in four complementing shades – Dark, Pearl, Smoke, Bluemoon and Terracotta – Modular is protected with Granorte’s water-based CORKGUARD®. This protective lacquer finish ensures that the tiles can withstand commercial use, remaining resistant to marks and easy to clean.

    Paulo Rocha, from Granorte, commented: “Cork is a versatile natural material that has great properties for projects focused on creating a comforting space for occupiers. At Granorte, we look to provide designers with products that allow them to use the finish in surprising ways. Modular is just such a product, offering a distinctly contemporary wall tile that embraces the natural aesthetic of cork in a fresh and interesting way.”

    The tile is available in a 580mm x 580mm x 7mm format for glue-on application. Granorte was founded in 1972 and has been at the forefront of finding ways to reuse waste cork ever since. With a broad range of wall and floor finishes, as well as furniture, sanitary ware and lighting, the Portuguese company is undoubtedly a pioneer in cork.
