furniture made from Old airplane partsAwesome furniture made from Old airplane parts
It is a general notion that the air planes once decommissioned from services, are of no more usage and the materials and the body of these aircrafts is a sheer wastage and is thrown in a dump. You would be surprised to know that these body parts are not only used to create stylish furniture, but also cost a small fortune, which is a really nice way to take care of the airline wastes. The unused parts of aircrafts are used in making furniture because they are of very high quality and are very durable, and also have a special appeal associated with them. The unused parts are fashioned in many ways, some of the airplane parts are used as it is, with minimum modification, while other are molded and modified into various different shapes to create stunning and creative furniture. The parts used in making furniture can be the pilot's chair, the plane's engine part or even the wings of the plane. A lot of creativity and ingenuity has been put in the creation of the furniture, which reflects both style and status. The furniture made from airplane parts can be shaped into anything, be it a chair, a table, a large corporate table, a bed, and even a book rack. The limit to creativity is only what you can think of, and there is no dearth of decommissioned aircrafts for those who recreate utility from wastes, and thus help save the environment.
There are many factors that have lead to the usage of aircraft wastes as creative and revolutionary furniture. There is a general tendency that the aircrafts that cannot fly anymore are simply useless, what you might think of as a waste product still has a lot of utility associated with it. The sturdiness and the material quality of the aircraft parts ensures that you have a very durable and long lasting raw material for creating unique furniture. All you need is to brainstorm your mind and think of the most creative ideas that can fully utilize the potential that these parts present before you. A good and attractive design can attract the attention of the wealthiest customers and as a designer you may get really good money for the same. Since the quality of the materials used is very good, the furniture made is very durable and also has a unique look associated with it, which reflects both creativity and love of nature that prompts anyone to use recycled products and improve the décor of your office or home with this very valuable addition.
These recycled airplane parts are remade into various forms of furniture, ranging from chairs, beds, desks, partitions, lighting, credenzas, seating, sculptures, and a lot more. A lot of creativity goes into making these furniture, and their major appeal lies in the fact that they are very exclusive and one of a kind. This coupled with the high cost of materials, contributes towards the heavy cost of such furniture, which in turn makes it even more exclusive.
Standard airplane furniture can cost you a small fortune, for example, the Lo Squalo Chair, made from air cooling engine of a DC6/7, costs a hefty $8500. The furniture cost is heavy mainly because of the high cost of raw materials and also because a lot of quality designing is done to make them look unique. This furniture is not just for anyone. If you belong to the very high income group, and are willing to spend a lot to have recycled airplane furniture in your home or office, then you are the target customer for this rather exclusive furniture range.
The recycled furniture is in great demand. It is used in homes, offices, and even some posh restaurants and hotels. The usage however is limited to the upper strata of the society and the prices are really forbidding for the common man.
Slowly it has become very fashionable to sport these Airplane recycled furniture in homes and offices and many are paying big bucks for the same. Some of the finest examples of furniture made from the airplane scrap are listed below.
