Edgeworth Economics – Washington DC
Located in Washington DC, Edgeworth Economics provides economic, financial, and quantitative analysis – including expert testimony – for legal disputes and a variety of business matters. For their recent office renovation, OTJ Architects created an open office space with uninterrupted sightlines and collaborative work spaces. They also utilized reSAWN’s YOKO shou sugi ban charred cypress elements throughout the space as an elegant pathfinding device that guides staff through a sequential spatial experience.
YOKO features charred cypress burnt in the Japanese style of shou sugi ban. It can be used for interior or exterior wall cladding and is available in select grade or #2 common grade cypress. YOKO is only suitable for interior applications. See our CHARRED Grading Guide for more info.YOKO can be treated to Class A Fire Rating for Interior Application – please call to inquire.
YOKO is carefully charred, misted with water, cooled, brushed and coated with a clear sealer. The top coat sealer is applied prior to shipping. The burning process accentuates the wood grain and creates varying colors when viewed from different angles and in different light.
YOKO is made with cypress sourced from the Southern United States and can be used for interior wall and ceiling cladding.
reSAWN’s CHARRED designs feature cypress, black walnut, red oak, white oak and reclaimed hemlock that is burnt in the Japanese tradition of shou sugi ban. Our award-winning CHARRED wood pays homage to the traditional Japanese technique of “shou-sugi-ban” aka “yakisugi” without being literal. Historically very specific in their definition, “shousugi-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.
