Inhabitat spotted VicoloPagliaCorta’s beautiful upcycled Apple key furnishings at Designers Block during the 2016 Milan Design Fair, where the tabletops were paired with the design duo’s LEGO tabletops, a more colorful alternative that also used upcycled materials. The design duo’s stylish furnishings were crafted as part of the 380|tiles project that used ten thousand discarded computer keys from Apple laptops. Each key was meticulously removed, trimmed, and cleaned before assembly into a mosaic of 20 rows and 19 columns.

The computer key mosaics sit on a sturdy oak base; the timber material provides a warm visual contrast to the white tiles. The mosaics were arranged in different patterns that follow one of three themes: letters, numbers, and symbols. VicoloPagliaCorta also produces other products from upcycled Apple computer keys and handles all aspects of the design process themselves, from production and packaging to promotion and distribution.
