77 Perplexing Plane Products

From Miniature Airplanes to Airplane Home Furnishings

— November 15, 2009 — Art & Design
The Wright brothers were really on to something. These awesome plane products are just some examples of how humans have been inspired by the ability to fly.

These plane products range from airplane wing coffee tables to luxury flight ideas. If you’ll indulge a horrible pun—every single one of them is first class.

Implications - Airplanes represent the ability of man-made technology, calling the digitized consumer of today to look back on the earliest achievements of mankind. Thus, avian aesthetics and technology are becoming an inspiration for pieces outside of the air travel industry. The industrial, formal feel and look of airplanes translates well into products aimed at a modern consumer.
