Opportunity Seized

"In March of 2008, a large fire burned the roof and top floor of the 100-year old Brooklyn building that is home to Oso Industries. During the roof’s reconstruction, workers cut out and carted through our shop these huge charred beams with a thick, unique texture. We decided to take this remainder of a destructive event and turn it into something constructive, reinventing the burned wood as polished concrete surfaces for our furniture. Using rubber, we created a mold from the most interesting of these beams, and the Burn series was born."
