The vanguard of desks. The aerodynamic shape of the Aviator Blackhawk Valkyrie desk is inspired by the North American Aviation XB-70 Valkyrie; the strategic bomber prototype used for supersonic test flights in the 1960s. The desk is clad entirely in our signature Spitfire finish in homage to one of the greatest fighter planes ever built; the British Supermarine Spitfire. Mimicking the plane's riveted exterior, aluminium panels are painstaking shaped and then fixed by hand-applied nails. A five-stage finishing process creates the impression of worn, distressed metal. Please note, the Spitfire finish features surface distress variations, which may vary from piece to piece.
“Two military aircraft, melded together in one awesome piece of craftsmanship”
Roots and inspiration
Our proprietary Spitfire finish came into being after Tim Oulton acquired a genuine Spitfire plane wing at a flea market. Its distressed, riveted finish became the inspiration for our epic Aviator Collection.
