Gallery: Uhuru Creates Neat School-Inspired Desks Out of Reclaimed NYC ...

Algebra and history are re-envisioned in the pine beams, reclaimed from heavy timber factory buildings in New York City offering a sturdy place to rest your latest read.

Uhuru compiled their collective memories of elementary school desks to create this functional piece that can be used as a desk or table. As a twist, these Rhode Island School of Design grads used the metal from the scaffolding as the legs.

Uhuru is a design + build furniture company dedicated to sustainability and creating timeless designs. They hand build each piece in their Red Hook, Brooklyn studio.

All pieces in the 12 x 12 exhibit were auctioned off with proceeds benefitting Brooklyn Woods.
