While founded by designer Andreas Roesler-Schmidt in 2012, the story of Flug zeug dates back further. Roesler-Schmidt loved the aura of aviation since his childhood. While working on his aviation-related Master thesis in 2007 he rediscovered his passion for aviation design and at the same time had the first ideas on taking aviation materials and design out their context to create accessories.
Flug zeug has become a trend hotbed making fashion and design products from airline materials, bringing aviation aura into everyday-life. Elements and fabrics from the aviation industry are put in a new context and result in high-flying accessories.
The brand is best known for their popular Flug zeug SLEEVE iPad and iPhone covers made from life jackets withdrawn from service aboard airplanes as well as the Flug zeug BELT with the original airplane buckle. The Viennese label reaches out to fashionistas, who like novelty items and individual designs, as well as everybody, who shares a passion for the unique world of airline design and aviation.
