THE CORK BOOK distinguished in the 2020 Compasso d´Oro awards

17 Sep / 2020

The book published by Corticeira Amorim, with graphic design by Studio FM Milano, received an honourable mention in the iconic Compasso d'Oro awards - one of the world’s most prestigious design awards.

Published in 2018, The Cork Book proposes a multidimensional trip to the world of cork, ranging from its sustainable origin, in the cork oak forest, to the relationship between cork and wine, and including the countless applications of this unique natural material and innovative developments across the entire cork industry.

Designed by Studio FM Milano, with art direction by Filipe Alarcão and Sergio Menichelli, The Cork Book presents an innovative graphic approach in its 377 pages.
On the cover, the word Cork is divided into two lines, evoking the representation of the chemical elements in the Periodic Table. The book pays tribute to the nobility and beauty of cork, a raw material that has been used for thousands of years, and which continues to be surprisingly contemporary. Its distinctive design elements include a textured surface, light appearance, a chromatic palette that combines two types of green (a more traditional version and a more fluorescent version, closer to the digital universe), and the combination of classic and contemporary visual codes.

Created in Italy in 1954, the influential Compasso d’Oro awards annually distinguish the finest projects in the world of design and are one of the world’s most prestigious design awards.

The Cork Book previously won the Bronze Award in the European Design Awards in 2018.
