Diego Perez is a Mexican artist who has taken scrap design to a whole new level. Diego Perez's designs include a chandelier made out of dried grape twigs and a coat rack made out of old Mexican walking sticks.

My favorite piece of Diego Perez's has to be the grape twig chandelier. The lights, dubbed 'Proyector,' feature a few colored bulbs wrapped in dried grape twigs. Check out Diego Perez's designs in the featured gallery and be sure to think twice before you throw away an empty bag of grapes or a busted cane.
