Wood scraps lit with LEDS by Marco Stefanelli

Italian designer Marco Stefanelli removes fragments from sawmill scraps, tree branches and cement pieces and fills in the gaps with sculpted resin embedded with LEDs. The Brecce Collection gives a second chance to ‘pieces that have reached their final step in the life cycle.’  The glowing shards really create a sense of the material being injected with new life.
