An ancient symbol of knowledge, this beautiful wooden apple's insides are made from the tiny but potent computer components that send information around the world. Are we smarter now? We don't know, but we know what we like when we see it. This natural-plus-technological fruit, Carmi Y. Plaut's artistic use of computer parts that otherwise would have ended up in a landfill—we like. Made of sustainably sourced wood and recycled computer parts in the Philippines.

“Upcycling isn't a trend," says Chicago designer Carmi Y. Plaut, “it's a way to take the unused trash of the world and make it into something beautiful.” Turning abundant e-waste into art is a passion for him. He likes to say, “Our motherboards are friends with Mother Nature.” Creative design thinking comes easily to Carmi, who has over 20 years of experience doing it. His designs and products sit in homes, museums and collections throughout the planet.
