Using reclaimed, authentic aircraft parts, from both military and civilian aircraft steeped in history, Plane Industries take pride in exploring the most innovative ways to breathe new life into these remarkable feats of engineering to design and create pieces of furniture, goods and art.
Imagination, old fashioned workmanship, and modern making are our tools to make and build the audacious, quirky and unique. We build to last, and hope that these pieces will be passed down to the generations to come.
We’re two brothers, with a shared love of breaking, then making. New life and new purpose to old materials and old objects. Our materials fascinate us and we do everything we can to pay tribute to them through our designs.
These metals and fabrics have history, provenance and a story attached to them that is linked to the heritage and beauty of flight.
As kids our dad, a farmer, taught us to be always resourceful and inventive, Nothing was discarded. Everything was repurposed. Imagination and creativity became our tools, and we’ve never put them down since.
Our venture took flight in 2012 with Fallen Furniture. With a few tools at our disposal and some scrap parts purchased from an Aircraft breakers we set about making. No real plan, just an idea and an aspiration to create the most beautiful, interesting things we could, and see if the world liked them enough for us to make a living through it. Since then we are proud to have made for hundreds of clients and some big companies too including, Red Bull, General Electric and Ryanair.
It grew, we hired our first members of staff, Matt and Ray and set about pushing our limits of creativity whilst constantly studying the materials at our disposal. We had so many ideas that would encompass much more than furniture, we needed a new name, Plane Industries was born.
We’re small, but like many sky gazers, we dream big. We want to do some good by making sustainable and durable goods, that have stories – tales of the past and future adventures.
