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 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.
