Fold Collection by Uhuru
Updated: Jan 6, 2020
The Fold Collection is inspired by the forms created by objects flattened in the neighborhood streets of Uhuru, in particular the metal straps used to attach goods to pallets and boxes in industrial Red Hook. In tandem, they sought to mimic the patina that naturally evolves on the surface of a material as it weathers and is exposed to the elements. As wood ages outdoors, the softer summer wood wears away to reveal the ridges of the harder spring growth. In steel, a darkening rusting and eventually pitting process occurs as water speeds the oxidizing of the surface. The collection includes twisted stools, side and coffee tables.
