ABOUT THE PROJECT
the Chicago-based Eastman Egg Company had been serving up delicious, all-natural, made-to-order breakfast sandwiches from their mobile food truck before deciding to open a storefront on Wacker Drive.
The interior of the restaurant is clad in our MOYASU cypress siding. This project features #2 common grade cypress that has been burnt in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban.
reSAWN’s CHARRED offering features cypress, western red cedar, Accoya, Kebony, black walnut, red oak, white oak and reclaimed hemlock that is burnt in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban. Our award-winning CHARRED products pay homage to the traditional Japanese technique of “shou-sugi-ban” aka “yakisugi” without being literal. Historically very specific in their definition, “shou-sugi-ban” and “yakisugi” have become common nomenclature for modern charred wood designs in general. All of reSAWN’s CHARRED products are made in the USA, in our facility in Telford, PA.
