Bote is a collection of toy boats made from cork and plastic.  Released in 2011, they’re the collaborative work of the Swiss-based design studio BIG-GAME and Portuguese company Materia.  Made with a cork hull to ensure buoyancy, the sailboat, yacht and cruise liner have plastic add-ons (a sail, a row of engine chimneys or a cabin) which make them both beautiful minimal objects as much as toys to be played with.
