AERO-1946 is a studio in Cologne, Germany. For six years, its two craftsmen have made household and workshop furniture pieces inspired by 1940s-era aviation. It often incorporates vintage remains of planes into the work.
The craftsmen made this lovely upright cabinet using the door of a Siebel Si 204, a German military and civilian transport in production from during World War II. The door sat in the basement of a home in eastern Germany for 70 years. AERO-1946 rebuilt it and fixed it into a shiny new cabinet body. The entire project took about 600 hours of work.
