With a combination of roughness and care, Kaspar Hamacher chops logs into sections, strips the bark away and places smaller burning logs on top to create legs from the charred remains, creating this unique design for charred furniture.
Given the natural ingredients of both raw timber and burning embers, the results, while clearly of a kind when set next to each other, are nonetheless always unique.

Combining traditional solid wood furniture craftsmanship with shou-sugi-ban charred woods to create unique, modern pieces
For his project at the Palais de Tokyo, Bernard Aubertin decided to produce a series of “fire-paintings”.
The French artist Bernard Aubertin met Yves Klein in 1957. After this capital meeting he painted his his first red monochromes. In 1961, Bernard Aubertin joined ZERO, a German artists’ group made up of (Otto Piene, Heinz Mack and Günther Uecker). With them Aubertin shared a distrust of language: “Art isn’t expression, it’s knowledge. You don’t have something to say, you can only be” (Bernard Aubertin). For Aubertin, monochrome painting is the best way to free oneself from the painter’s gesture and, in doing so, give rise to a pure space and an anonymous vital energy. Ascribing a prophetic, liberating value to the color red and “levitating fire,” in which he sees a materialization of “extrasensory” culture, Aubertin has tirelessly developed his many series of paintings, the “monochromes,” “squares,” “reds,” “fires,” “golds” and so on.
The “fire-paintings” are fashioned from matches, which leave only traces of smoke and charred wood in the end. Aubertin sees them as so many manifestations of the power of art materials.
Internationally renowned Italian sculptor Aron Demetz makes use of traditional woodcarving techniques to create sculptures that often convey his preoccupation with humanity’s relationship to nature. Rather than presenting polished and perfected works, Demetz revels in the wood’s textures and its transformation through various natural processes. The charred human sculptures evoke feelings of vulnerability – of both the wooden materials they are composed of and the human figures they represent. Demetz’s sculptures present mankind and nature as one, reflecting the fragility of both.
SHOU SUGI BAN SIDING at the EASTMAN EGG CO.
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. 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).
