Lighting Made with Aluminum Aerospace Parts and Wood by Alper Nakri

A series of lighting where each piece has a story to tell based on their 1940's aluminum aerospace parts.

Los Angeles-based artist Alper Nakri created a series of five lamps based on his concept ‘Maybe’ where each piece has a story to tell. The Aero Series joins World War II era aluminum aerospace parts with walnut wood to explore the idea of repurposing. Behind each design, Nakri has crafted fictional stories as a way to get you to think differently about objects you use and to inspire you to dream up alternate stories of your own about them. The main components of each fixture are parts produced by and for California’s Lockheed Corporation, which closed in the 1970s resulting in the inventory landing in junkyards. By utilizing these 1940s aeronautical parts and turning them in light fixtures in 2017, Nakri connect the pieces to their history.

After the war, when the American planes were put out to scrap. They were dismantled and sent to junkyards in Burbank, California. Maybe Marcus? elder son Vincent spent days and days there looking for that...
