Tumble is a fraction of a platform that intends to be an element of space organization, before any other function, the producer Movecho states on their website. The Portuguese architect and designer Carvalho Araújo crafted Tumble from cork, which makes it sustainable and biodegradable, yet provides enough structural strength to carry the weight of a person sitting on it. Cork is becoming increasingly popular and can be used in a variety of products, due to its impermeable, buoyant, elastic, and fire retardant properties.
