Single speed is drawn to cork flooring for its earth-friendliness but loves its architectural potential too. “Cork is perfect in forming a visually monolithic surface that can conform to curves,” Hong raves. The firm’s supplier of choice is Bronx, N.Y.-based Globus Cork, which produces tiles in a variety of colors, shapes, and sizes. Custom colors are available on request.
