Art Made From Aircraft Parts Gaining Popularity

Some MRO providers find success in using aircraft parts to make furniture and other art objects.

Aviation art and furniture are gaining in popularity. The companies featured have supported art endeavors that are someting to see. For instance, in 2013, ASI supplied a Boeing 737-700 to The Hanger One Project—a “graffiti-off” between two well-known artists.

In 2015, Aircraft Demolition created Aero Art Shop. It has built coffee tables out of exhaust mixers and Boeing 727-200 leading edges, chairs out of DC9 inlet cowls, and barstools out of a JT8 burner can and bearing pockets.
