MotoArt career path

Once part of an engine that traveled the world, now living a sedentary life as a desk -- sounds like the career trajectory of most people.

Airplane trolleys get new life on the ground

You're accustomed to seeing these things loaded with lousy meals and pushed by flight attendants. After life in the air, airline trolleys, durable and portable, make great furniture on the ground. Given a proper makeover, that is.

That's what Germany-based retailer bordbar did with this filing cabinet. Once it held ginger ale and packets of peanuts. Now it holds important documents; bordbar trolleys start at €979 (US$1,300).

Trolley facelift

As this simple but brilliant bordbar design proves, getting furniture from airplanes doesn't have to mean cutting through an aluminum fuselage or hacking off the engine. Sometimes it's a simple matter of taking what's already there and giving it a slight facelift.
