We've seen a fair share of so-called "space-saving" solutions for infinitesimal urban dwellings, so perhaps it was only a matter of time before someone saw fit to appropriate other ultra-compact articles of furniture for home use.
That someone is Peter Jorge Fischer, who has "taken the robust and versatile Airplane Trolleys from the sky and, with a large portion of entrepreneurial matter-of-factness and a knack for design, is elegantly styling airplane trolleys for apartments and offices." Commercial airlines may be decades off their halcyon years, but Fischer hopes to capitalize on the undeniable utilitarian appeal of an aluminum-clad food cart with SKYPAK.
And while Fischer has bedecked his repurposed furniture with contributions from a whole gang of designers and collaborators, the copywriting—for "design furniture straight from heaven"—is the big sell:It is slender, smart and stylish—gives you itchy feet and is reminiscent of the sound of turbines, the travel bug and airy heights. We are talking about the highly maneuverable and functional Airline Trolleys, the mini bars on wheels in airplanes. Guided by friendly flight attendants, they were invented to help pass the time on long-distance and scheduled flights and provide passengers time and again with an astonishing range of delicacies.
Fischer has no shortage of ideas for innovative uses for the SKYPAK: "a 'sweets drawer' for tasty treats, as book cupboard, as wine rack or as luxurious shoe cabinet... the chic, functional trolleys also cut a fine figure as a extravagant wardrobe, DVD rack, coffee bar or home entertainment center."
The 24K gold exterior says class, but the heavy-duty casters say practical too
Of course, there seems to be one glaring omission in the veritable laundry list of potential uses for the SKYPAK: as a rolling luggage.
