Cork Mosaics are an exciting cork flooring concept from Jelinek Cork that repurposes recycled wine corks to create beautiful eco-friendly floors. Created by cutting wine corks into circular discs and then gluing them to a “special” paper backing, Cork Mosaics use the same “glue then grout” installation method as traditional ceramic tile mosaics. Because they are anti-microbial and comfortable underfoot, they are quite appropriate for use in wet areas. These mosaics can be left in their natural cork color or stained.

This floor covering combines different materials, textures or colours using a modular base. A way to create various ground experiences on one even surface. The curvy pattern is generated by a scrap-less geometric cut where one form is creating the other through a same adjoining line.
The project started by gleaning trashed wood in the streets of Brussels, finding a way to raise this material to an extensive and walkable marquetry.
