Barcelona design firm Bel & Bel makes chairs out of the front farings of old Vespa scooters, with the option of working turn-signals (no side-mirrors in sight, alas).
The farings are reinforced, fitted to a reclining, hydraulic wheel-base, and upholstered in fake leather. No prices given, which usually means, "If you have to ask, you won't be able to afford it."
Its traditional character and high-end components only makes it a unique product and a great sample of contemporary design.
It is also a piece emotionally charged for all lovers of this classic and iconic motorcycle.
Base model can be customized with a wide variety of extras (if you are interested in customizing your chair or need more info please contact us here).

We’ve all dealt with paint cans — and keeping all those metal buckets full of sloshing paint from turning into a giant mess is pretty close to impossible. But you stand a better chance of finishing your project without the entire room looking like a Jackson Pollock painting with the help of the ingeniously simple […]
If you ever dropped a quarter into a Space Invaders game, you’ve likely fantasized about having your own arcade cabinet in your house. Of course, you likely thought better of it for several reasons, including the idea that a giant cabinet dedicated to just one game isn’t very practical. Polycade understands the urge though very, […]
Most of us have a love-hate relationship with banks. Okay, it’s actually probably more like a tolerate-hate relationship. We understand their role in holding and securing our money so we don’t have to stuff it in a mattress somewhere. But we don’t trust the bank not to gouge us on fees whenever they can. And […]
