Wouldn’t it be cool to have a Ferrari bucket seat as your office chair? Well, now you can give your office space a nice upgrade with the Ferrari Cockpit Office Chair. This bucket chair is the result of a collaboration between the sports car manufacturer and Italian furniture designer Poltrona Frau. The two Italian companies unveiled their chair at Milan Design Week.
The design was overseen by Flavio Manzoni, who oversees all aspects of design for Ferrari’s cars. Made from real repurposed Ferrari bucket seats and parts, these chairs are as close as you can get to real Ferrari racing seats. The company says that OEM pieces from low-mileage wrecks, race conversions and incorrect orders were used for these chairs.
The Ferrari Cockpit Chair comes in two different versions. Both versions feature a reclining base and seat. The Executive is smaller and has a lower back support. It is also shaped more like a scoop. The President is the larger or managerial version. It features a higher backrest and features the ergonomics and appearance of a traditional racing seat.
Featuring the same upholstery that Ferrari uses in the bucket seats of its cars, these chairs look and feel like the real thing. The finishes and shades were inspired by the trim of several of its vehicles. The chairs feature a carbon fibre shell and aluminium swivel base for support. This swivel base has the same mechanical elements and design as Ferrari’s steering wheels.
These office chairs are perfect for a long day at work. They will surely put a little excitement in any boring, tedious workday.
