Upcycled furniture and lamps made from decommissioned missiles and ammo



I really didn’t expect to see this. It is a very original idea to make pieces of furniture from some decommissioned missiles or to use ammo to make jewelry. Given the fact that my father worked in the army, I suppose that passion for this kind of objects was inherited from him, so I kind of like these decorative objects. Designed by ex-military brat Jake Wright, the furniture and houseware are available at his Etsy store, where each piece is full of history repurposed into functional furniture.

Usually, war ammunition is kept in the dark or forgotten in military bases, but Jake Wright wanted to give it some utility, and in the same time to use it in a fashionable way. He scours military surplus and scrap metal yards for the decommissioned historic military weapons, than each piece is repurposed and taken out of its war torn past. One of the masterpieces from his store is a fashionable table lamp, which combines an elegant, soft textile material, with the Megaton bomb left over from the Korean War.

Another interesting piece of furniture is a modern table which uses a large missile as centerpiece support, obtaining an interesting decoration for an unusual living room, like these cluster bomblets from the Vietnam War which are made into small desk lamps. Wright has also ventured in the jewelry world, by creating a line of baby bomblet pendants, fit for both sexes. Stockpile Design takes the negative connotation out of these vessels of war, celebrating their unique design and transforming them into unusual home furnishings.{found on inhabitat}.
