The Electri-City is a miniature cityscape made from recycled printed circuit boards and other waste electronic components with an integrated lighting system, all contained inside a sturdy acrylic and glass coffee table. All shapes and sizes are possible, along with lighting and functionality options – if there’s something you want the city to do (play music, show pictures, run a train set, check your email), the possibility is there.

In addition to the table models, wall-hanging Electri-Cities are available – built around a hemisphere these pieces resemble a city covering a small planet or an aerial view of a city as through a fish-eye lens.

These pieces conjure an image of a future society built from what we throw away. Utopian or dystopian, the Electri-Cities are as entrancing as they are intricate and will draw people back again and again.
