Sky Decor name most of their furniture after birds. The ‘Falcon Table’, pictured above, is made from the tail wing of a decommissioned jet that Sam and Khan found in the ‘scrap yard’ at Wilson Airport. “The whole idea of this table is stealth…the Falcon is the fastest bird on earth,” Sam tells me when explaining the name choice.
The black structural chair pictured with ‘The Falcon Table’ is made from metal reclaimed from a hangar at the same airport. “We wanted something that matched the Falcon Table… and we wanted a cantilever. The thing I love about this chair, is that it started off as a general idea and we didn’t really know how it would look when it was finished”. The final result is one piece of metal bolted to a base, spray-painted black at an auto body shop in Langata.
