We are excited to announce that fellow member and designer Ana Mestre will be exhibiting as part of this Festival. You will be able to see her work here at THECUBE London, from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th September.

Her Corque Design introduces a new global brand concept – “Designing Living Objects” – the design of high quality, exclusive and differentiated products made from cork with unique sensorial properties and exceptional environmental characteristics, for an audience that prizes creativity, functionality and sustainability conscious design.

From the Mediterranean cork forest to the world´s most renowned design stores such as the Museum of Modern Arts retail store in New York, Corque Design succeeded early on as a recognized world brand and trendsetter in the field of sustainable product design, appearing on the Monocle, Wallpaper, New York Times, Financial Times, and many other publications.

“This is a Portuguese brand with its own seal of quality. Environmental awareness, a vision of sustainability, the questioning of established paradigms and a search for new solutions. Any challenge worth undertaking involves a good deal of irreverence along the way. This is the spirit in which Corque Design was created” (International Direct Arts International Magazine, 2013).


THECUBE London is excited to see a fellow member exhibiting at the Shoreditch Design Triangle. If you are a designer (scientist or technologist) looking for a workspace in the heart of East London, just get in touch! Our email is
