Uhuru’s scrap-wood creations caught our eye at BKLYN Designs last year, and at this year’s festivities, their Stoolen Lite low table was once again a crowd pleaser. The round coffee table, constructed of collected wood scraps from local workshops, is the second generation of the Stoolen Chair, which is smaller, and encompassed by a found bicycle rim. While we love the simplicity of the circular shape as it cleverly mimics the shape of a tree stump, custom shapes and sizes are also available. Uhuru will also be one of the design teams showing their work at the upcoming HauteGREEN show this coming weekend.
Uhuru was founded in 2004, by Bill Hilgendorf and Jason Horvath. Regarding the issue of sustainability and green materials in their work, here’s what they have to say:
For us sustainability is about choosing materials with the least amount of environmental impact, whether it is what they are made of, how they are produced or where they come from, and using them in a way where little to no waste is created.
