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).
