Jazz raises funds for children by transforming aircraft parts into furniture

Published on : Friday, January 24, 2014

jazz-aviation-300x130Jazz Aviation LP (“Jazz”) is pleased to announce a collaboration with Toronto-based design firm Creative Group Interiors to raise funds for charity. Creative Group Interiors’ principal designer, Aisan Ahmadi, has taken retired aircraft parts from Jazz airplanes and transformed them into uniquely designed furniture. The pieces will be auctioned off at the Interior Design Show in Toronto starting today, with all proceeds going to charity.

This was made possible by 3 Points Aviation, a supplier and manufacturer of aircraft parts, who brought Jazz together with Ahmadi at Creative Group Interiors.

“Jazz has a long history with 3 Points Aviation and we are honoured to participate in this special project,” said Jolene Mahody, Chief Operating Officer at Jazz. “We are proud of all the communities we serve and feel that Chisholm Services for Children is a well-deserving organization for Jazz to contribute to.”

Jazz will donate their half of the proceeds to Nova Scotia’s Chisholm Services for Children (www.chisholm4children.ca). Creative Group Interiors will donate theirs to ONEXONE (www.onexone.org).

Some of the extraordinary pieces up for bid include a bar table made from engine parts, a bar made from an airplane galley and a desk made of an aircraft wing. The furniture will be displayed only at the Interior Design Show (Booth #442), and the auction will start at the opening night party this evening and will close at the end of the exhibition on Sunday, January 26, 2014. The bidding will happen through silent auction in the booth.

“We believe in designing for the future and helping to build better communities,” said Ahmadi. “I had a lot of fun designing these furniture pieces and I hope we can make a small difference with what we have done here.”
