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.

I use blogspot but I had a web developer customize the web design for me.

Good luck!
