Scrapile Lamp, Scrapile, Recycled Design, Green Design, Sustainable Design

In the last six months I’ve tried twice to get myself one of Scrapile‘s cube lights — the pendant lamp made of their signature striped wood. But each time I get one, I think of someone I want to give it to and end up giving it away!

Recently I had a chance to see one of my delightful gifts hanging in a friend’s house. Because it’s made with varied layers of wood, some of the stripes are translucent enough to let a little light glow through. It’s absolutely perfect (made me wish I’d kept it!).

In case you’ve never been to Inhabitat before – Scrapile is one of our favorite furniture designers of all time. The Brooklyn-based design shop makes gorgeous striated home decor out of recycled bits of wood scrap leftover from the manufacturing industry.

    I can’t seem to find anyone who sells the Scrapile pendant light pictured above. Are they still in production?

    Hi George-

    Check out Vivavi’s line of Scrapile designs:

    You can speak to Scrapile directly if you’d like to get some of their material, although I believe they are not selling it at the moment. Worth a try, though!

    Like the design. How could I purchase similar items ?
    Could I purchase the scrapwood plates for various other items I could manufacture ?
