Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner and Airbus’ A380 are both competing to replace an ageing fleet of 747s that have served passengers for more than 40 years. But what’s to be done with all those jumbo jets once they’re been replaced? MotoArt has the answer, at least when it comes to the 747’s gigantic engines: a stylish conference table that looks suitable for a meeting of the world’s most evil supervillains.
Though incredibly massive at 4m across, the jumbo jet conference table — made from a 747’s General Electric engine nacelle — can actually be disassembled so it will easily squeeze into a lift. And it’s as functional as it is beautiful, with six pop-up power and connectivity ports, internal LED lighting and an engine spinner from a B-52 to help sell the effect and justify the table’s $35,000 to $45,000 price tag. Add a bowl of snack-sized peanut packs and the experience will be perfect.
