'Typologie' is a collection of design books about ordinary objects. Each volume is devoted to one ordinary object. It inventories its numerous shapes, explores the manufacturing process, details its history, and highlights its enduring relevance through the voices of passionate specialists. Each issue is published in English and French versions. This issue is dedicated to the cork stopper and features; a large photographic section; a trip to the cork oak forests and factories in Portugal; industrial archives and corky stories; a sensitive encounter between a manufacturer, a famous consultant, and a Catalan designer.
Each issue features two sections: The first one is printed in tri-color on thick paper, and presents a series of original photos of ancient and contemporary objects, faithfully reproduced. The second one is printed in color on thin paper and contains authors' texts, a crossed interview, a factory documentary and archive images.
