New Brooklyn Shake Shack Features Furniture Built from Local Factory Beams

Design

Wood infused with New York history crafted by the talented Mark Jupiter

One of the latest Shake Shacks to set up shop in New York also happens to feature some supremely well-crafted furniture from the designer Mark Jupiter. What’s even better is that the stylish set is made from 400-year-old heart pine joists and beams salvaged from local construction sites, such as the defunct Brillo Soap and Arbuckle Coffee warehouses. The project is an excellent use of reclaimed wood, and local talent in the name of more sustainable practices.

Located in a century-old brick building on 1 Old Fulton Street, the DUMBO Shake Shack is also home to a delightful wood-burning stove, and has menu items which draw on the area’s history – such as a dessert new dessert named after the nearby Jane’s Carousel. Apart from all the homely touches, there is also a stunning view of the Manhattan skyline to remind people they’re still right in the heart of New York.

Mark Jupiter utilizes mostly reclaimed and repurposed materials found from local sources. All of his pieces also happen to be made in his workshop and showroom located in DUMBO, Brooklyn. Many people are drawn to Jupiter’s work because of the history instilled into each piece. As he describes on his website:

We are finding that people not only appreciate our designs and prices, but truly love the great stories behind the materials used. For example we have several tables on the floor constructed from the ancient Redwood of 150-year-old New York City water towers, extinct Heart Pine taken from the old Brooklyn sugar refinery, and equally rare spalted Elm from trees toppled by the Brooklyn tornado of 2011. The stories go on and on.

Jupiter is in a class of his own when it comes to skill, sustainability, and commitment to his craft. The furniture speaks for itself, but for those who don’t know, he is also a founding partner of the award winning and nationally acclaimed New World Home.
