Jason Horvath and Bill Hilgendorf, the duo behind the Brooklyn-based design company Uhuru, have reclaimed some pretty unexpected materials, such as bourbon barrels and pieces of the Coney Island boardwalk, to create their furniture collections. But the strangest yet is their just-finished War Craft Line, which converts the original deck of the 1,000-foot-long WWII battleship USS North Carolina—built out of teak in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the late 1930s—into a set of end tables, a rocking chair, and even a coffee table with a pattern based on the geometric “Dazzle” camouflage that battleships used to confound the sights of enemy gunners. And, like the ship, the table doesn’t blend in as much as stand out.
