The artist David MISHKIN was selected by Dominique TOURNEIX, President of DIAM, to provide, and to create from DIAM corks, CORK ART collages to decorate the interior of a new reception area at the company’s production site extension. With an investment of over 25 million euros, the Céret (Eastern Pyrenees, France) extension for the treatment of cork allows DIAM to produce more than 1.5 billion DIAM corks a year.  DIAM, is a subsidiary of OENEO, an important manufacturer of wine barrels and corks worldwide.



Four collages for the new Céret reception area employ more than 20,000 corks contrasting traditional corks with DIAM closures. Two employing traditional closures and two from new DIAM, Mytik DIAM and DIAM Altop corks engage nearly 100 square feet of floor and wall space. While assuring visitor safety, comfort and enjoyment, the reception area  enhances visitors’ appreciation of DIAM creativity, technical mastery and respect for tradition.
