Bringing subtly gorgeous furniture and household pieces to the forgotten room in the house, Portugal-based Rui Pereira and Kyoto-based Ryosuke Fukosada‘s Bug Collection is made from largely cork, with thin black metal piping to form each structure. Anti-allergenic and resistant to mold and liquids, cork is perfect for life in the bathroom, used here as both a base and a holder. Debuting at this year’s Milan Design Week, the pair developed the collection long-distance, via Facebook, Skype and email, sending pictures of materials, prototypes and sketches back and forth until they settled on the designs and construction.
