HONO STOOL
 

HONO STOOL

Shou Sugi Ban is an ancient Japanese technique that preserves wood by charring it. Traditionally used for exterior siding using Sugi (Japanese Cedar), UHURU has applied this method to furniture for an exclusive, limited edition release of 25 tables and stools fabricated from reclaimed cedar poles from the Pacific Northwest.

The decades-old poles were cut and charred in UHURU’s Red Hook studio and are finished with a non-toxic, plant-based oil. The resultant stools and tables speak to the timelessness of the Shou Sugi Ban method and pay homage to its status as one of the earliest methods of wood preservation.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Further down the natural spectrum, Uhuru Designs looks for innovation in nature, like using the ancient practice of shou-sugi-ban to add texture and pay homage to what some say is one of the earliest methods of wood preservation. Organic materials are still the centerpiece, but they’re being imagined anew.Shown: Hono Stool, Uhuru Designs
