Earlier this November, reSAWN TIMBER co. was one of 325 exhibitors to present a wide variety of products to the hospitality industry at Boutique Design New York (BDNY). The two day event brought over 5,000 hospitality designers, architects, and purchasers to the Jacob Javits Center in NYC in search of sustainable and cutting edge materials. reSAWN featured shou sugi ban charred wood, interior and exterior cladding, newly harvested and reclaimed flooring, and custom furniture pieces.
After a busy day building the custom booth, reSAWN began BDNY with an exhibit that represented the design focused ethos. The feature wall was made of KURO shou sugi ban charred cypress with IRUKA shou sugi ban wall slats. The Credenza 2 design was in front of the feature wall, and consisted of black walnut doors, white lacquer wrap, and a metal base. Another RSTco. furniture design that was on display, Collaborative Table 1, was made from all rift white oak and featured integrated power and a metal base. Underneath it all was AMITY European, wide plank white oak flooring.
In addition to the samples of standard reSAWN products, the booth showcased custom furniture samples like a scalloped, burnt and brushed reclaimed hemlock panel and a live, burnt edge black walnut slab. With a three dimensional aesthetic and compelling texture, the scalloped hemlock sample was a hit with designers and architects who envisioned the many applications for the material.
With hopes of positively impacting the A/D industry, reSAWN TIMBER co. seeks to consistently produce wood that is thoughtfully designed and manufactured and contributes to a sustainable planet.
