It may well be that just mentioning this object will elicit some frowns among our pacifistic contemporaries (and not only those). But upon actual visual inspection at the latest, this skepticism will turn into a subtle, approving smile. After all, this object is quite clearly a matter of transforming a military, technological legend into a soft, sculptural item for household use. The basic material for this needle-felt flyer, lying limply on the floor, consists of a building-blocklike construction kit - which, however, is not supplied in the usual plastic material, but as a jumbo textile floor covering.
This set is of such high aesthetic appeal that only a few will be tempted to actually put the single parts together to build a JU87. And if they do, it will probably not be out of a desire to glorify the STUKA dive bomber, but, at most, the result of a genuinely playful energy.
