Uhuru Design

Uhuru is a design + build furniture company dedicated to sustainability and creating timeless designs. Uhuru builds each piece by hand, in their Red Hook Brooklyn studio. We strongly agree with the shaker assertion that “beauty rests on utility” We strive to make furniture and products that are beautiful in their simplicity with an acuteawareness of materials, and craft. Many of the items we create utilize materials that have been reclaimed, recycled, repurposed, reused or otherwise rejected from their original function.

Founded in 2004 by Rhode Island School of Design Graduates Jason Horvath and Bill Hilgendorf, Uhuru (ooh-HOO-roo) is a furniture
design/build company merging avant-garde design with a commitment to environmental sustainability.
