CoveringsETC Creates Re-Purposed Furniture From Lufthansa A320 Engine Parts
Miami, FL, April 14, 2017 (Newswire.com) - CoveringsETC showcased their new “Tecknik Project” for Lufthansa Airlines during Miami Ironside’s first “Open Friday Breakfast” monthly event on March 31st, 2017. Their Eco-Terr® “Venetian Terrazzo” in the shade Bergamo Black G was used by the artist Linus Ilario Spano, to re-purpose an engine spool. The table and stools will be used in Lufthansa’s new Florida head-quarter's office opening in Fort Lauderdale, FL.
This table is made out of a Rolls Royce engine spool from a Lufthansa A320 airbus, which has covered a distance of 5 million miles in its lifetime. This means that it has circled the globe over 200 times before the part was taken out of service. Nevertheless, due to the CoveringsETC collaboration with Lufthansa to create this sculptural and functional art piece/furnishing, this spool has been re-purposed and continues to remain within the arena of aviation and design.
"This project is a continuation of our ongoing Up-Cycling Project in the Aviation Industry, in which we started by recycling fuselage parts as seen with our Bio-Luminum product line. We are happy to have worked with Lufthansa in order to up-cycle other parts of the aircraft to our line of products."
Eco-Terr® is a classic Future-Friendly™ product that uses Portland cement and various aggregates to create timeless Venetian Terrazzo precast tiles and slabs. For more information contact Andrea Romero at ce@coveringsETC.com or visit www.coveringsETC.com.
