Look out Hipsters of Australia, we have discovered the presence of these amazing Vespa Scooter Office Chairs. Surely this would be the dream office chair for those who enjoy that somewhat quirky retro vibe and to be the envy of their deconstructed latte sipping colleagues.
These super cool office chairs are the creation of a studio workshop in Barcelona called Bel & Bel. The designers Carles Bel and Jesus Nel founded their studio in 2005 and have a design inclination towards the ‘readjustment of old objects into functional ones such as these brilliant Vespa Office Chairs.
Their now famed scooter chairs are made from the actual chassis of old original Vespas and are upholstered in a faux leather. The chairs are also quite functional as per the requirements of any regular office chairs and are fitted with hydraulic height adjustment and a recline function. But wait for it! The chairs also include a set of functioning lights to add that authentic scooter feel to the chair.
Obviously being unique pieces of furniture they are available in a select range of colours and are made on demand. One of their chairs can also be found at the Piaggio Museum in Italy. With the success of the chairs they have now branched out into making Vespa style Segways, which give that cool retro vibe to the now dated Segway.
