Our shop specializes in digital fabrication delivering CNC milling and 3D printing services to Brooklyn, New York City and the surrounding Tri-State area.
Founded in 2009 by Ezra Ardolino, Timbur is a hybrid practice; one that engages the contemporary divide between thinking and making in the digital fabrication industry. It is the mission of Timbur to realize the synthesis of digital fabrication and design. We bring contemporary production methods and technologies to the architecture, design, art and construction industries via our line of CNC manufacturing and digital fabrication services, in the New York City area.
At Timbur, materials and the environment are a big deal. From sustainably harvested wood to formaldehyde-free plywood, compostable corn plastics and non-toxic finishes we are frenetic about sourcing and utilizing the latest innovations in sustainable material. Materials used include high-density urethane foam (HDU), aluminum, wood (plywood, MDF, hardwood) acrylics, solid surfaces, autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC).
Our experienced fabrication team is made up of architecturally and design-minded contributors. We partner with our clients to create a finished product that embodies their design and vision. From tables to cabinets, foam sculpture enlargements and retail display units – TIMBUR offers expedient, professional and reliable service to the NYC-Area. We invite you to take a tour of the shop and see the equipment work in-person, for a consultation or to meet the team. All Timbur products are proudly designed and manufactured in the USA and carry the “made in USA” trademark.
Educated as an architect and experienced as a designer and educator Ezra has spent most of his life exploring, expressing and communicating the beauty of the everyday world. With an eye for the aesthetics of form, an enhanced sense of materiality and an extensive knowledge of the latest advances in computer-aided design and manufacturing technology Ezra provides the creative impetus and technical skill that drives Timbur.
In addition to running Timbur Ezra Ardolino is currently an Adjunct Assistant Professor at the Pratt Institute School of Architecture where he specializes in digital fabrication and computational design. In the past Ezra has had the privilege to teach at the Cornell University College of Architecture, Art and Planning and the opportunity to work at the offices of ROY, servo, su11 and Dupoux Design. Ezra earned a Master of Architecture I degree with academic distinction at Pratt Institute in 2004.
