The company in fact, makes use of the cabin interiors found inside airplanes and transforms them into a myriad of attractive seating options ranging from chairs and sofas to luxurious loungers.
Marc Venot arranges the individual aircraft parts in a repetitive manner, creating a sequence that more or less resembles the feel of sitting in an actual aircraft.
