The War Craft Collection was built from reclaimed teak of the retired USS North Carolina and debuted at ICFF 2011. The battleship was built in the Brooklyn Navy Yard in the late 1930's, commissioned for service during World War II, and stands as one of the most decorated battleships in US naval history. Its sleek, uncluttered design set a new precedent for all future ships.
Each piece of the War Craft Collection explores different elements of the battleship—from its dazzle camouflage pattern to the forms of the hull and bridge tower. Deeply engaged with the ship’s history, the War Craft Collection exemplifies the massive scale and violent nature of modern warcraft, while paying homage to those lost during its campaigns.
