Uhuru Design, 12 x 12, NYC Design Week, Reclaimed Wood, Salvaged Lumber, Green Design, school design desk, Henry David Thoreau School, NYC green design

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.
