Fear Of Flying

Seeing his father and grandfather breathe new life to discarded things in their garage paved the way for Paco Pili’s affair with upcycling. Even though preoccupied with running his own design-build business, Pili manages to set aside time for repurposing objects that are otherwise deemed useless. This passion project serves as a breather from his commercial assignments. “It makes me happy especially when people appreciate my work, and I’m able to help the environment at the same time,” he relates.

In this collaboration with Space Encounters, Pili, together with lead designer Wilmer Lopez, built furniture pieces out of discarded airplane parts that Lopez sourced. “I got really excited when they showed me the pieces that we would be working on.” The result is a collection called “Fear of Flying”—proof that a free-flowing exchange of creative ideas knows no bounds.
