C-119 Rudder Airplane Desk

With the original cloth cover of this 1950’s rudder from a Fairchild C-119 stripped to expose the engaging interior design, the MotoArt Rudder Desk is a piece of custom airplane furniture that will impress and inspire. Like so many MotoArt creations, it discovers the contemporary within the past in the most creative and sustainable of ways.

 

Mounted on 4” wide hardwood “V” shaped legs, this richly detailed custom executive desk can be powder-coated in an array of color choices to perfectly match your home or office décor. This striking piece can be custom made to act as an 11’ conference table or a substantially sized 8’ 4” executive desk for a personal office – in either incarnation, it’s sure to be something that creates a distinct energy and atmosphere for any contemporary space.

 

The Rudder Desk is topped with a stylish ½” tempered glass surface that allows up-close viewing of the compelling elements and design that form the rudder of this historic aircraft.

 

MotoArt’s Rudder Desk is an eye-catcher to say the least. It has been featured in the national publications like, Pilot, Luxury & Lifestyle and Swoop among others. It is a very limited edition with currently only a handful frames available.
