The Rocket by Amelia
Crafted from the leading edge of the wing of a Boeing 737, this cabinet is truly an outstanding piece of furniture. The cabinet is finished and set in a base of hand-polished Connemara marble, mined from the Twelve Bens Mountains on the Atlantic seaboard on the West Coast of Ireland. The original interior paintwork of the wing edge is pale green in colour, complementing the wild veining and translucent colour of the rare marble. The interior of the wing, which flew through the air for almost sixty thousand hours of flight, remains in its original condition, and lends itself perfectly as an impressive drinks cabinet. In fact, The Rocket is created from the wing of a plane whose last flight flew into the West of Ireland, and now is complemented in its final form with a piece of national beauty from the area.
