Bug Collection is a minimalist design created by Rui Pereira and Ryosuke Fukusada, debuting at Salone del Mobile. The Bug collection aims to create a deeper connection between the bathroom area and the rest of the home by revisiting furniture typologies. The designers wanted to use a natural material that could co-habit with the moist atmosphere of the space.

Wood was the first choice, but it required a lot of maintenance. Since they have been working with cork in other projects, they found it to be the perfect solution for this one in particular due to its unique properties: impermeability to liquids, thermal and acoustic insulator, hypoallergenic and soft to touch.
