Paul’s latest aviation desk lamp design continues to incorporate key components from the A320 Aircraft seats. As shown above, each lamp varies slightly in their combination of parts in order to use the components from each row of seats most efficiently. The new lamp shade design utilises aluminium fire extinguishers which are shaped to compliment the skeletal curve of the lamp body. These are then stripped and polished to a high shine finish.

his architectural chair was made using a pair of ribs out of the tail of the A320 plane which were shot-blast and powder coated. Paul also incorporated tubes from the plane seats and the cargo net into the supporting structure. Foam from the plane seats was the reupholstered with a grey luxe tweed fabric by the talented Ray Clarke. This pieces is the last remaining chair available from Paul’s commission on Kevin’s Supersized Salvage.

This ‘oversized’ arching floor lamp has been made from the A320 plane for Kevins Supersized Salvage. Paul used the two bathroom sinks which he welded together for the shade. The arches have been made using torsion bars from the tail of the plane. The base of the lamp was made from a section of the pressure bulkhead. All this is weighted a substantial amount of the engine pylon.

As part of our commission for Kevin’s Supesized Salvage we collaborated with the talented Lucie Gledhill at Made By Ore to produce these stunning hand made turbine cufflinks. Using the precious metals that we extracted from the electrics in the A320 plane Mastermelts were able to refine 24 carat gold which Lucie then made into these 9 carat rose gold remarkable pieces. This piece has been sold but is soon to become available through The Rag and Bone Man.

Paul developed our range of aviation clocks as part of his commission for Channel 4′s Supersized Salvage. Made out of fuselage and iconic window frames, our series has been finished in a range of surface textures as show in our shop. All of the clocks use instrument panels from the cockpit which have been cut, shaped and reused for the clock arms.
