Built in Brooklyn by Uhuru

Multidisciplinary design collective Uhuru has long been a scion of the Brooklyn design scene.  Their furniture collections and interior design schemes combine a raw industrial design aesthetic with a sense of refined elegance.

The Alca collection of cast iron and charred-edge walnut tables, designed in collaboration with Constance Guisset, is an elegantly whimsical mashup of Brooklyn and Parisian styles.  We also like the minimalist and sculptural Tack collection of occasional tables and the Fold collection of metal tables, inspired by metal packaging straps.  Stylish, full of personality and not a man-bun in sight.

Terrazzo Things from Lick My Brick

There was a time when the use of marble was largely restricted to floors, posh kitchen counters and grave statutes. And then, at some point around the mid-noughties, marble was everywhere. Could the same be happening to terrazzo?
