Decorate your shelf or smuggle secret cargo with the Contraband Cork Speedboat. Made from Recycled Cork, each stopper is removable. Ships are water safe and float. Each ship comes packaged in a hand-screened and numbered box by designer Mark McGinnis.

New York City based designer Daniel Michalik began using cork in 2003. Inspired by its sustainability, origins, and materiality he is pushing both the form and function normally associated with this material. From his seating solutions to his decorative bowls, his pieces manipulate notions of what cork can be made into.
