Standing more than eight feet tall and weighing 600 pounds, the mirror-polished Cluster Bomb Luxury Drinks Cabinet is a surprising piece of furniture. Developed by British outfit Fallen Furniture who specializes in reclaiming aircraft parts and turning them into artistic furniture pieces, this drinks cabinet is just one of the highly impressive items in the company’s portfolio. A while back we published this spectacular hand polished Boeing 777 wheel turned into an original coffee table by the same studio.
But let us get back to this unconventional drinks cabinet and its features, as presented by the designers. Behind the gleaming 1970s missile fuselage, three glass shelves revolve around a gold-plated spindle; while in the base, a sliding platform built from lacquered American walnut conceals an armoury of custom-made cocktail utensils. With its potent fusion of industrial heritage and high-end craftsmanship, this breathtaking cabinet is without equal.
Given their terrible nature, the team at Fallen Furniture intends on running a campaign to get as many cluster bombs out of circulation globally and turning them into useful objects. How do you find this idea? [Photos and information provided via e-mail by Fallen Furniture]
