Using reclaimed, authentic aircraft parts, from both military and civilian aircraft steeped in history, Fallen Furniture take pride in exploring the most innovative ways to breathe new life into these remarkable feats of engineering to design and create pieces of art and furniture.
Each piece of Fallen Furniture is meticulously crafted with an emphasis on originality and personality, resulting in a distinctive and decorative tribute to aviation heritage and engineering, guaranteed to intrigue, to captivate, and to inspire conversation in any home or place of business.
With a strong belief in design as applied art – there to be used as well as admired – inspiration is drawn from a number of different periods: from the Art Deco movement of the early 1900s to the Parisian craftsmen creating robust industrial furniture and lighting in the 40s, to the 21st century eco design movement.
A design process and ethos has been born that centres on celebrating a single, beautifully engineered aircraft part and marrying it with an eclectic mix of sustainable metals, woods and textiles to create a truly unique product of elegance, functionality and modernity.
Working from a restored 17th century building on the outskirts of the creative heritage city of Bath, a strong focus on British manufacturing and craftsmanship is adopted, with all elements of production based in Britain. This enables complete quality control over every piece that leaves the workshop.
A320 LEADING EDGE DESK LAMP
AIRCRAFT PART: SECTION OF A LEADING EDGE SLAT OF AN AIRBUS A320.
The iconic curves and sharp edge of the leading edge slat radiate Art Deco design. Inspired by this beautiful period, we transform a whole leading edge slat into a number of smaller parts. Each piece is then sanded, polished and powdercoated before being married with a weathered brass column and a hand-built iron base to create an intriguing desk or table lamp.
