DESIGN: Motoart’s Airplane Furniture
We love the art of recycling and reuse, especially when it is done with a great eye like Motoart has. These pieces can stand on their own as fine art sculpture – yet they are fully functional and user friendly, gleaming machined sweetness with a history.
MotoArt designs high quality corporate and home furniture made from vintage airplane parts. Stationed in El Segundo, CA their designs create an eclectic environment in any space and pay tribute to the great art of aviation. MotoArt takes wings, spoilers, ailerons and engines from iconic planes such as the DC-4, the Boeing 727 and 747, C-119 and Albatross Aileron’s and turns them into custom-made office furniture.
All of the company’s desks are made from parts they have salvaged from vintage airplanes. For starters, the C-119 Rudder Desk is a piece that has been stripped down to show the bones of the original 1940’s design. The C-119 was used during the Korean and Vietnam wars to haul troops, cargo, and weaponry. Believe it or not, this desk requires more than 120 man-hours to make.
