    I did a photoshoot with Pinguino and a few other photographers in their studio. They have some REALLY COOL STUFF.

    A few years ago, I was hired to do an architecture shoot for the real estate company that owned the buildings that housed Disney’s (now defunct) animation studios in Marin. The offices were built out of old military aircraft hangers and they kept the aviation theme going throughout. Their conference table was made by this company, although I didn’t realize it until just now. I’ve had the photo in my portfolio for almost a year now:

    Cool stuff. A company called Plane Pieces Inc is also in the biz, mostly propeller blades. They had their fix-pitch in the Iron Man 1 movie and have been designing since 2004.

    Dave,
    These guys were actually part of a reality show about their business a few years ago (on The History Channel, I think) until the death of one of the team members. It was fairly interesting.

    The ones yesterday were sexy and they sort of make a statement about preservation of resources, these though are just ugly, heavy and they don’t feel natural at all, at least to me.

    I’m paranoid so what are the odds that I’m going to get contaminated metal isn’t there is a growing industry of reusing mildly radioactive material? Or someone just melted down a bunch of cadmium batteries to put into my frying pan?

    They had a very short lived show on Discovery about 5 years ago. I really like what they do. I especially liked the Bar cart made from the mobile refreshment cart the stewardess’ used.

    Nice stuff. I remember seeing some similarly cool furniture that Pixar artist Jay Shuster made a while back.
