Three Designers. One Plane. Zero Waste.

Catch us in action! – Thursday 24th April at 9pm on Channel 4.

In this 90-minute special, Kevin McCloud challenges three designers to turn an entire Airbus A320 into hundreds of amazing new products in a giant ‘Up-cycling’ experiment.

Their task is to find a new use for every single piece of the plane, leaving only an empty hangar behind them.
Upcycling a plane is no easy feat and Gatwick Group were given the mammoth task of transporting it to it’s final destination, where the 3 designers suddenly realise the enormity of the challenge before them!

Our MD’s Bob & Pauline with Designer Harry Dwyer, in our new reception pagoda seat. Come and visit us and try it out for yourself !

The office pods and desk lamps, rickshaws and rocking chairs, luggage, storage and even jewellery that they fashion from this fallen giant will prove – in a spectacular and sustainable way – that creativity is a genuine solution to Britain’s waste crisis.

The proceeds raised from the sale of the plane creations will be for NCCA UK; a children’s cancer charity working to raise awareness of neuroblastoma, fund research and support families so that more children can survive the disease.
