Motoart turns classic aviation parts into eye-catching furniture for home and office. MotoArt was started by Donavon Fell III when he began creating sculptures from B-17 propellers he happened upon in the back of a scrap metal truck. After putting in a lot of elbow grease cleaning, sanding, and polishing the parts, Fell happened upon a great idea to create sculptures and furnishings from parts of aviation history. Now Fell and his team create a wide range of furniture and decor including desks, tables, credenzas, beds, picture frames, couches and chairs from various parts of old airplanes.
The 747 Wing House is a unique residential structure high in the Santa Monica Mountains. The wings of a deconstructed Boeing 747 airplane were transported to the 55-acre property in Malibu to form a unique Wing House on the cliffs with a view of the Pacific Ocean. The design is by David Hertz Architects Inc. and was completed in May 2011.
The main residence uses both main wings as well as 2 stabilizers from the tail section. The art studio building uses a 50-foot long section of the upper fuselage as a roof, while the remaining front portion of the fuselage and upper first class cabin deck was used as the roof of the guest house.
