A range of furniture made from flight cases used by pop stars has been launched by Manitou Design. The Locknroll range includes a chest of drawers and a coffee table with names such as Fleetwood, Marley and Joplin. The collection comes in various colours and is aimed at the home. The concept was borne out of Manitou Design creative director William Cawley’s designs for a kitchen made from flight cases. The furniture varies in price from £350 to £1100, and is available at www.locknroll.co.uk.
