Flight of fancy: the Tucker Brothers release 737 Cowling Chair
If you thought that it's impossible for an airplane to have a comfortable seat, you're mistaken. The Tucker Brothers' brand Fallen Furniture—a design company that uses reclaimed aircraft parts to create functional appliances—has recently unveiled a chair that has us reaching for our wallets. In short, they took a cowling from a Boeing 737—the silver removable covering that houses the airplane's engine—and turned it into a retro (and super comfortable looking) chair we'd love to take a nap in.
This isn't the only airplane-focused design they have on their roster. They also use airplane cowlings to create conversation-starting bars (which can also be used as reception desks). Because of Fallen Furniture, a world exists where airplane fuselages become clocks or wall art and escape hatches become coffee tables—a touch of whimsy for a design that really doesn't have much life once permanently grounded.
