BRC designs appears to be Benjamin Rollins Caldwell and co-workers of Spartanburg, South Carolina. They created Binary Low Table, here.

Though we see lots of furniture built from old computer parts, electronics, and other scrap, I especially like this one because I think it provides an object lesson in how to do this sort of thing and make it look good: Greeble it up! When you’re basically just glomming bits together to achieve a utilitarian form, the more visual complexity you can achieve in the surface texture, the better.

Plus, I try not to miss an opportunity to use that word. More pics and deets at Core77.
