Iconic Design has created a series of unique handcrafted office chairs from pieces of Italian Lambretta motor scooters. Jim Plester, the designer of the chairs, used traditional scooter spares; this includes the leg shields, horn casting, badges and trim. The color of the bodywork is based on traditional Lambretta colors and the upholstery is made from 100% leather. Each chair is finished with either leather piping or double stitching. The upper lumber panel is embroidered with the Lambretta logo, with the Lambretta font matched to the year the scooter was produced. These retro-inspired chairs are both fully functional and would be at home in any office.
