Dubbed “the re-inventor”, designer and founder of BRC Designs Benjamin Rollins Caldwell creates furniture from both traditional and unconventional materials—from wood, metal, glass, plastic, and stone, to playing cards, defunct pianos, reclaimed computer parts, books, bottle caps, and children’s toys. Caldwell sources materials from thrift and antique stores, and junk yards, and has said, “sometimes the objects I discover simply inspire an overall design idea, and other times the objects actually become the raw material for the piece.” His “binary collection”, which garnered attention recently when Lady Gaga featured one of Caldwell’s chairs on the cover of her ArtPop album, incorporates motherboards, computer chips, and LED screens. Other designs have included a lamp composed of recycled piano keys, and a chair and table made from copper piping.
