Flight – the myth

Silke Vollmers (Leipzig)
Mythos Fliegen / Flight – the myth

The dream of humanity; the feeling of lifting off, and limitless freedom above the clouds. Playing with these associations the artist uses airplane fragments to construct usable furnishings. The bed consists of a tail-wing unit, steering elements, and motor parts, and is hung from the ceiling by steel cables.

Also hanging from the ceiling are numerous tables, each constructed from a different stage of a turbine. The chairs also originate from an airplane as do the shelves, which are built from propeller blades. Appropriately, the guests may record their dreams of flying in the flight log for the next passenger.


b. 1966 in Jakarta. Self-taught designer of furniture and objects made from airplane parts since 1996. Exhibitions at the Luftfahrt Museum Hanover and in the International Flight Exhibition AERO in Friedrichshaven.
