Uhuru Design | W . A . R Craft Line.

An interpretation of Dazzle camouflage that was used on battleships to confuse enemy ships. Through high contrast and disrupted lines, Uhuru graphically breaks up the pattern for a functional coffee table. The levels represent the decks of the battleship, with framework inspired by nautical forms. The top is layered paint on aluminum, and the base consists of solid wood legs.

The sturdy shape of the BB-55 Rocker, named after the North Carolina class of battleship, takes cues from naval design. The forms of the base and seat mimic the curves of the hull and the taper of the bridge tower. The teak base of this low, modern rocker transitions into a steel frame above. Cotton webbing, weaved in a random pattern, forms the seat and backrest. With colors inspired by the original ship, the fractal pattern also references Measure 32 camouflage, which was used on the ship to avoid detection when travelling through open water.

The 16/45 End Tables vary in size, each referencing the colossal diameter and caliber of the bullets that were onboard the USS North Carolina. The tapered shape of the table supports took subtle cues from the battleship itself. The lightness of the base is a direct contrast to the solid bullets. Crafted out of either teak or cold-rolled steel, the tables support black glass and are available in three heights.
