furniture made from salvaged aircraft material by marc venot


‘elevate’ by marc venot for flown

panels which were once used to shape the cabin interior of airplanes used for long haul flights are re-purposed by marc venot
to function as seating. the french designer’s ‘elevate’ series for flown – a company which produces custom furniture pieces from salvaged aircrafts –
uses the curved components (with window openings) to form the structural back and sides of his designs which range from a small chair
to a lounger to a meridian sofa. the manner in which venot has arranged these these parts, draws on the typical way in which these walls
are assembled in a repetitive way, appearing in sequence. much like privacy walls, brings back the feeling of sitting on an airplane,
creating a micro architecture within one’s home. the chairs are based on the contrast between the strong, smooth exterior panel and the
soft interior, upholstered in kvadrat textiles.
