Pursuitist Aircraft Parts As Functional Art



There is something weirdly appealing about the idea of curling up inside an engine cowling, especially if that engine cowling is no longer attached to a working aircraft and thus poses no threat. Plane Industries, a company based in Bath, England, is all about repurposing authentic aircraft parts to make beautiful and functional pieces for the home.

One of the company’s most notable pieces is a chair made from the engine cowling of a Boeing 737. The gleaming orb looks like something a Bond villain might sit in, and it would undoubtedly make a magnificent statement piece in any home. However, if you’re not into the idea of using a cowling as a chair, perhaps you’d be interested in having it repurposed and turned into a home bar? And if alcohol and aviation is a mix you’re fond of, then you’ll be delighted to learn that Fallen Furniture also offers a towering drinks cabinet made out of a R.A.F. MK1 Practice Cluster Bomb. This imposing piece stands at over eight feet tall and weighs 600 pounds.
