comments: bart bettencourt and carlos salgado are the designers behind scrapile. they decided in 2003 to start the company with the idea of designing products by salvaging waste from the new york woodworker's industry. wow. because of their process each piece is unique. the pieces are beautiful but knowing their material source makes them even more so.
