When looking over the Fold Collection, from Brooklyn-based Uhuru, you might be surprised to find out what inspired it, but once you know, you can totally see it perfectly. The folded metal forms reference flattened debris found throughout the company’s industrial Red Hook neighborhood, specifically the metal straps that bind objects to pallets and boxes.

They even took the idea a step further by replicating the natural patina that happens to the materials as they weather the outdoor elements. The pieces in the collection, which includes consoles, a bench, coffee table, and end tables, will age over time as well, slowly revealing character.
