HALIFAX, Jan. 23, 2014 /CNW/ - Jazz 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
"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 and online at www.32auctions.com/aircraftfurniture.
"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."
