Brooklyn’s Oso Industries in NY Times’ Dining & Wine

by brooklynmodern | June 24th, 2009

In Design as Diplomacy, the editors of the Dining and Wine section report on the transformation of Desirée and Jeffrey Greene’s high-end SoHo loft. Desirée, who collects books on Indian philosophy and has traveled throughout India, has a special preference for concrete because “it’s a cool stone,” and “there’s no air-conditioning in India.” To realize this theme, they collaborated with Brooklyn’s Oso Industries. Eric Weil, the firm’s founder, is known for pushing the limits of concrete by adding color, textures and coupling it with materials such as stainless steel rebar, black walnut, and glass. Check out Oso Industries’ work here.

This bench was created by taking rubber molds of the bark of a Pine tree
and sculpting clay casts of this bark into the geometric shapes. The bench is
cast as a single piece and the top has been polished to a mirror finish.
