Airbus Releases Furniture Collection Made of Aged Aircraft Parts

European Aeronautic Defence and Space Company aka Airbus has launched its own online shop “A Piece of Sky”. The shop sells one-of-a-kind furniture and lighting products made from end-of-life aircraft parts.

Airbus employees Anaïs Mazaleyrat and Jérémy Brousseau came up with the idea of transforming old airplane parts into furniture at an Internal Training program at Airbus’ Leadership University in Toulouse in 2017.

They completed the initiative with the help of Airbus BizLab, which is a part of a network of Airbus business accelerators around the world.

From armchairs to coffee tables, the duo has developed about 22 furniture prototypes with a group of 11 design professionals till date. These can be pre-ordered now, with delivery slated for 2020.
