    Cédric Etienne

    Cédric co-founded Studio Corkinho after witnessing the stillness of a Portuguese cork harvest. Cork is both a primary material and a source of inspiration in the studio’s attempt to develop an architecture of silence. Fascinated by the hidden power of isolation, Studio Corkinho engages around how to curate stillness and bring a deeper meaning back into spaces. A continuous process of redefining and remodeling elevates the hidden dimensions of noble materials through curiosity and innovation.
