Portuguese product designer Gonçalo Campos has created the Rolha side table.
“Rolha”, (Portuguese for the cork stopper used in wine bottles), is a side table inspired by maybe the most recognisable and age old ritual in Portugal, the uncorking of a fine wine.
This table is composed by very simple elements. A solid, turned cork top and 3 turned wood legs, fitted with a screw, similar to the ones used to uncork traditional wine bottles.
By simply twisting the legs in the cork top (in a very familiar motion), this table can easily be assembled without any tools. Thanks to the amazing mechanical properties of cork, this elementary action is enough to keep the table sturdy and stable.
