SCRAPILE is the collaborative work of designers Bart Bettencourt and Carlos Salgado. Seeking to create a possitive environmental impact with their work, these two have developed a unique method of collecting and repurposing discarded scraps of wood from New York's woodworking industry. Since it's conception in Fall 2003, this project has continued to yield an ever-evolving line of furniture and product which by its very nature insists each piece be one of a kind

Vincent, Zach, and I came up thith this idea that was inspired by Scrapile's work. Useing the scraps wood to creat our funiture for the bus. Since this bus is made for the society, we think it's a great idea that we took scraps wood from Syracuse's constraction site. use city's scrap to build this M-lab and give it back to the city has offered a lof of meanings. We can even hang a photo of where we took the wood from in the bus, just for people to remember and to give a little history for the bus itself.
