Amsterdam-based firm RKNL Furniture Design have created the Wooden Ruban Coffee Table in brushed brass & burned oak using Shou-sugi-ban technique.
The great feature of this Shou-sugi-ban technique is not only that the wood gets a deep charcoal color (basically it becomes charcoal). The main advantage is that the grain becomes much deeper.
The soft parts of the wood are burned and brushed away, resulting in a far deeper wood pattern (see detailed picture of the drawer).
