Reclaim, repurpose, reimagine. Uhuru Design works deeply within these concepts to create furniture that merges the avant-garde with the sustainable.
Since 2004, their studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn has established itself as one of America’s most innovative design firms producing furniture for the home and workplace that call out to the past while pushing the boundaries of the future.
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.
