What We’re Loving!

Shou Sugi Ban

Are you a lover of dark & cool toned aesthetics like us? However, are you worried that the space might look too cool to be inviting? Our answer is to bring fire in.

A Japanese carpenter invented this beautiful technique – “shou sugi ban” – to achieve the performance and look of weathered wood effectively. The burning / charring process brings out not only the aesthetically pleasing rich-textured surfaces but it also provides a weather proof barrier which makes it a incredibly versatile surface material for both interior and exterior use.

Inspired by this Japanese tradition and with the abundant domestic softwood supply, reSAWN designed a whole collection of charred wood surfaces suitable for exterior & interior cladding, flooring…and more!
