Boeing Wingtip Desk



In a twist of high-flying innovation, a French design studio repurposed this Boeing wingtip into a sleek, futuristic desk. Les Ateliers Flown created the piece from a 737-800 model wingtip in a cantilevered design, meaning the white-and-silver wing stands on one “leg” of its own as it intersects the floor with a curved wing joint. A thick granite slab props up the wingtip on the other end.

The 13-foot desk is currently on display in Paris’ Gustave Moreau Museum, but it will be auctioned off to aviation enthusiasts in March.

  2. Wonderful site you have here but I was curious if you knew of any discussion boards that cover the same topics talked about in this
    article? I'd really like to be a part of online community where
    I can get feedback from other experienced individuals that share the same interest.
    If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
