ABOUT THE PROJECT

Gensler selected reSAWN’s KINOKO shou sugi ban charred reclaimed hemlock for the feature wall in their Philadelphia Office.

Gensler is a global design firm that partners with clients to create more livable cities, smarter workplaces and more engaging leisure destinations. Their 4,500 professionals networked across 46 locations believe quality design can transform organizations and improve people’s lives. Since 1965, they have helped clients achieve measurable business and organizational goals, delivering projects as large as a city and as small as a task light for an individual desk.

This project features reclaimed hemlock that has been burnt in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban.  This ancient technique is gaining new life as a unique and modern interior and exterior wall cladding.

The wood is carefully charred, misted with water, cooled, brushed to remove dust and loose debris, and then stained/sealed to create the unique designs you will find in the CHARRED collection.  The top coat sealer is applied prior to shipping (for exterior applications, we recommend sealing the face & back).
