Scrap Design

Industrial components make up bare-bones furniture pieces

Implications - In this era of upcycling, designers are attempting to use whatever they can to avoid waste and to relay a message. Furniture design is one area in which bare-minimum design is becoming more prevalent. The use of industrial pieces, from pipes to tools, makes stripped-down furniture pieces funky and modern, lending a twist to home decor that in many cases also achieves the goal of being eco-friendly.
