18 NEW CHARRED DESIGNS TO COLOR YOUR WORLD
reSAWN is pleased to introduce 18 new oil finishes for shou sugi ban charred cypress in bright, bold colors that are ideally suited for a variety of applications in sectors such as hospitality, restaurants, offices and tech companies. Architects and Designers now have the ability to specify a natural product that is handcrafted with beautiful, rich color.
reSAWN’s CHARRED collection features cypress, black walnut, red oak, and reclaimed hemlock that is burnt in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban. Translated as “the burning of Japanese cypress (sugi)” or yakisugi, and traditionally used in Japan as exterior siding, this ancient technique is gaining new life as a unique and modern interior and exterior wall cladding.
The charcoal barrier created through this process preserves the wood, and is fire, rot and insect resistant. The burning process accentuates the wood grain and creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and in different light.
