‘casuarina’ wood material is used locally as scaffolding for buildings under construction. It is inherently strong, light weight and has a unique character. Yusuf developed a dining concept with this called the ‘casu dining’.
It is used in combination with other hardwood for the table, where as the dining chairs are entirely made from casuarina wood, with hand woven cotton tape as their seat.
