BORN IN BROOKLYN
Established in 2004 in Red Hook, Brooklyn, founders Jason Horvath and Bill Hilgendorf started designing and building custom high-end furniture with reclaimed materials.
From reclaimed Coney Island boardwalk to teak salvaged from a decommissioned battleship, Uhuru finds inspiration in materials steeped in historical significance.
With work appearing in both the Smithsonian and the Brooklyn Museum and an influential client list that spans the globe, it’s clear that Uhuru – which mean freedom in Swahili – have built their own piece of history.
