MotoArt In The Press: Dude I Want That
It’s always an honor to have one of our pieces of airplane art furniture featured on a website we enjoy reading ourselves. And when it’s a website like Dude I Want That, a curator of the best cool stuff to buy, it’s pretty damn great. Here are a couple products of ours that have been featured.
MK-84 Bomb Aquarium
The MK-84, a general-purpose US military bomb, is known as the “Hammer.” Here incorporated by the incomparably creative and mildly devious MotoArt into an 80″ tall fish aquarium, appropriately termed the MK-84 Aqua Bomb, I think it is merited–and would even be remiss not–to say: Stop. It’s Hammer time. The massive reimagining of a macrocosmic bringer of death and destruction into a microcosmic cradle of life and prosperity will even speak volumes to those who need to turn everything into an intellectually stimulating blah blah philosophical rumination instead of just accepting the aquarium for the chocolate-coated, caramel-filled eye candy it is.
MK-84 Aqua Bomb construction begins with the missile’s tail fin assembly, painted hot rod red, and fitted with a 10-gallon Plexiglas fish tank. Topping off the look is a spun aluminum dome cap. The aquarium enjoys complete self-containment with a built-in pump, filter, and lighting. Fish are not included. But you knew that…right?

Oh boy. The magic of the sky meets the magic of where the magic happens. MotoArt, a group of daring-with-a-touch-of-devious mile-high artists, recycles old jet parts into exclusive, flashy pieces of furniture and home decor. Perhaps their series of Jet Beds, forged from the likes of DC-10 cowlings, 747 engine nacelle cowlings, C-124 cargo plane floors, and DC-9 rear stabilizers, can be best described as testosterone-engorged purveyors of Bow chicka wow wow.
