ABOUT THE PROJECT
Pizza (216), a New York style, brick oven pizzeria, is located in Cleveland, OH. With an interior motif that sets a maroon color scheme against dark, brown seating, the dining room and bar are cohesively finished with reSAWN’s KURO shou sugi ban charred cypress wall cladding that accentuates the restaurant’s natural aesthetic.
This material was specified by local and national award-winning, Robert Maschke Architects Inc., known for innovative design techniques that create “…complex spatial effects with modest means.” Materials were specified with a 5-1/8″ wide face and tongue & groove milling. A select grade of cypress was used to ensure a high-quality look and durable functionality.
reSAWN’s award-winning CHARRED collection pays homage to the traditional Japanese technique of “shou-sugi-ban” aka “yakisugi” without being literal. Historically very specific in their definition, “shou-sugi-ban” and “yakisugi” have become common nomenclature for modern charred wood designs in general. All of reSAWN’s CHARRED products are made in the USA, in their facility in Telford, PA. reSAWN uses domestic wood species whenever possible, including Cypress from the Southern US and domestic White Oak, Black Walnut, Red Oak & Ash as well as reclaimed woods from the US. The designs in the CHARRED collection have been carefully developed using modern finishes and incorporating reSAWN’s many years of experience in the architectural & design specification market. reSAWN manufacturers charred wood products for a range of applications including exterior siding, interior wall cladding & flooring, and custom furniture.
