Smooth, sleek and fast: aeronautics and streamlining as furniture inspiration

In this new and exciting project I will spend the next two months I will researching the design history of American aeronautics, focusing on the technical and cultural notions that have influenced the changing appearance of airplanes and the concept of speed over time, at the National Air and Space Museum and the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center.

Up close and personal with the conservation of the Horten IX V3 flying wing at NASM’s Udvar Hazy center. These German brother’s extraordinary experimental aircraft have inspiring forms - sleek and anthropomorphic.

NASM’s conservation staff is doing all they can to preserve this one of a kind aircraft. See more about the project at
