It's rare enough to think about using airplanes in industrial design. It's even rarer to recycle their parts for furniture. That's actually a fabulous idea. That's what Deborah is. A recycled computer desk made out of an aluminum airplane wing. That's a must for anyone who enjoys the clean lines of airplanes and for the inner geeks in all of us. This astounding desk is covered in tempered glass, to unsure that it doesn't break

We aren't kidding. This desk is actually made out of an airplane wing, from a Gulfstream G5 nonetheless. Originally, the design was for a custom piece for UK retail magnate Theo Paphitis. Now, Reestore are making them on order for those able to afford them.
The wing actually rests underneath a glass surface, so you won't have to worry about damaging it. It measures 7 feet by 3 feet deep. It stands almost 3 feet high. We think that that this desk is simply wonderful. The only sticking point is it's price. It's really interesting to recycle airplane wings in such a fashion. Since it's recycled, you'd expect it to be pretty darn cheap. However, for those of us who can't afford it, there may be some recycled car desks around here somewhere that you'll be able to craft out of something found at a junkyard.
Still, it would grace any corporate reception desk gracefully. Customers and clients would most probably be astounded to find out that it is an actual airplane wing. We can see other corporate magnates already lining up to purchase it. If it used to fly around, it's most definitely good enough for your computer. [via NotCot]
