Salvaged elements of rustic beauty and heavy industry fuse together to create this beautiful recycled coffee table by designer Thomas Troisch . Troisch lives in a port city, and he drew inspiration for his piece from the by-gone era of majestic ocean-liners, with their polished wooden decks and hand-hammered copper boiler plates. To create the table, the designer combined a single 6 x 3½?, 3? thick salvaged ponderosa pine slab top with an all-copper base, stacking them into a design infused with the spirit of recycling. + Thomas Troisch The article above was submitted to us by an Inhabitat reader.

Comments Off on INTERVIEW: Inhabitat Chats with Recycled Wood Designers Scrapile

I have been enamored with environmentally conscious furniture company Scrapile ever since I came across their line of recycled wood furniture during New York Design week years ago. Brooklyn-based designers Carlos Salgado and Bart Bettencourt have created a beautiful, cutting-edge line of furniture by collecting wood scraps from various lumber mills and recycling those scraps (which would otherwise be headed for landfill) into their stunning minimalist pieces. At this point, the Scrapile line includes tables, benches, stool, shelving, crates and lamps, all made out of their signature striated material. I had a chance to sit down with the up-and-coming design duo at their shop in Williamsburg to learn how it all began.
