Dutch designer Dolph Bode created this Airplane wing desk using a section from a 1944 Douglas DC-3. Repurposed airplane parts make for stunning furniture.
Dolph is an avid seeker of the Douglas DC-3 parts and travels around the globe to track down select pieces.
Restore offers a more polished (and available) form of the airplane wing desk with their duly named Deborah. This version using a similar section of an aluminum airplane wing with a glass top and a little more polished and appointed finish for about $3,500.
However, MotoArt wins the prize far and away for repurposing old airplane parts into sleek furniture. The Albatross Tank couch features smooth lines, shiny appeal, and some nice legs (couch looks nice too).
The Cowling Reception Desk comes from the Boeing 747 engine cowling (jet intake). The 727 Cowling Desk offers a smaller version of the same.
MotoArt fuses recycling, art, and utility into a beautifully polished package. Check out their site and the slew of work they have to show.
