Wooden Concorde Speedform
We worked with a skilled wood machine shop in Los Angeles to create a 3D form of the Concorde. The process was more challenging than we anticipated. They had to combine different blocks of walnut to make an airplane body, wings, and tail, making it look seamless and like one block of wood.
Now that we have launched our full-scale Concorde sculpture at the hotel, we've decided to release a small run of commissioned Concorde speedforms featuring the British Airways logo in gold foil. These will be made as orders come in and minor customizations can be discussed with each client.
We sweat the details so you don't have to.
51" nose-to-tail in length
21.5" at the widest point of the wing tips
Wall mount sets the sculpture 1.5" off the wall
9" total depth off the wall

- Available in Walnut, Maple, or White Oak
The Concorde holds a special place in our hearts here at Discommon, not just because the sculpture we executed for The Peninsula is the craziest thing we have ever done, but because it represents one of the only pieces of technology that society has gone BACKWARDS from. Travel, at least as time is concerned, moved backward from its peak of supersonic travel; it's a fascinating thing.
