Scrapheap challenge: Somerset’s Tucker Brothers at Mead Carney Fine Art
An airplane wheel transformed into a table, a RAF cluster bomb re-imagined as a drinks cabinet, a table lamp made from the leading edge of an Airbus A320 wing: the unusual creations of the Somerset-based Tucker Brothers look like the results of a more refined Scrapheap Challenge.
Working exclusively with reclaimed parts from decommissioned military and civilian aircraft, the Tucker Brother’s industrial pieces are now the subject of a solo show entitled Fallen at Mead Carney Fine Art in London.
Counting art deco, French industrial furniture from the 1940s and latter-day 21st century eco design among their inspirations, the brothers’ meticulously-crafted pieces tread the fine line between art and design.
‘Fallen is on view until 14 November
