Burl Cork – Birkenstock Store

Birkenstock Cork Feature Wall

Singapore

Outside Burl Cork

The Eco Floor Store supplied 35 square feet of outside burl cork for a feature wall in the new Birkenstock store at Velocity@Novena Square, Singapore’s only shopping mall dedicated to sport and lifestyle. The eco-friendly wall surface is installed between shelving displays and features illuminated Birkenstock signs.

The use of cork in the space was highly intentional with a triple purpose. Birkenstock footwear uses cork as the primary material in their comfortable soles. The outside burl cork used in the store showcases Birkenstock’s star raw material. In addition to a visual showpiece and materials showcase, the cork feature wall also has acoustic benefits. The sound dampening properties of cork reduces echos in the store helping create a comfortable experience for shoppers.
