California-based company MotoArt designs striking furniture pieces made from iconic aircraft. More sculpture than industrial design, MotoArt brings function, history, and a sense of eclecticism to their pieces. On top of that, their commitment and love for aviation radiates through their work.

C-119 Rudder Desk

C-119 Rudder Desk

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!

DC-9 Desk

The DC-9 Desk is a bold design crafted from Plexiglas, hardwood, and metal that’s been welded, acid-washed, sanded, polished, and buffed—to say the least. The DC-9 plane was first introduced in the 1960s and is still used today by major passenger airlines.
