Haute Surface - Modular Cork Tiles
We've written about modular surfaces before, but it was all about walls surfaces then. Continuing the innovation of mio's modular wallpaper tiles, Isaac and Jaime Salm have created Haute Surface, a set of interlocking cork tiles that piece together to protect table and furniture surfaces.
Reconstituted cork is a sustainable, heat-resistant natural cushion for hot pots and pans that could scorch countertops. Besides keeping the kids busy, we especially like Haute Surface's houndstooth modularity because it's versatile enough to re-assemble a basic trivet into larger table runners or placemats.
It's time to get rid of that ugly trivet in the kitchen now. You know the one.
