Uhuru Design War Craft Line

Straight from Red Hook, Brooklyn, Uhuru Design showed their new War Craft Line during New York Design Week. The collection is the firm’s third “local materials” set, this time using reclaimed materials from the USS North Carolina. The ship was built in Brooklyn Navy Yard during the 1930s and lived a decorated life at sea.

The line includes the 16/45 end tables, named in reference to the bullets employed on the USS North Carolina, and the a coffee table dressed in dazzle camo. Additionally, the BB-55 rocker takes cues from the ship’s hull shape and the Mark-8 Room Divider again uses bullets as style cues. In total, the collection turns history into contemporary furnishing with a solid sustainable twist.
