From Wing to Table: The Aileron Credenza

From the recycled powder-coated C-119 Aileron (the hinged control surfaces of a wing) from a recycled airplane, this elegant credenza is just as striking as it is sustainable. Once used to control the degree of lift and movement on an aircraft, this desk reflects the sleek and refined design of the efficient aileron and the traditional mechanical focus of work desks. The company that develop this credenza, Motoart, has a long history of developing furniture from the recycled elements of commercial and private aircrafts, and I personally feel that their degree of creativity and focus on the reclamation of used mechanical sections make their furniture both incredibly unique and a reminder of the quality of good engineering.
