Ferrari’s design team has created a new office chair for Italian brand Poltrona Frau. Rivaling that of a cockpit of a sports car, the chair is optioned in two styles: the President, featuring a higher backrest based on racing seats, and the Executive, boasting a notable scoop shape with a lower support.

Each chair is ultimately designed to envelop the body, furthermore capturing the “excitement, speed and dynamism” of being behind the wheel, says Ferarri’s head of design, Flavio Manzoni.

The upholstery materials utilized on the chairs are the same found in Ferrari’s cars, as the cast aluminium spoked base is also inspired by mechanisms found in steering wheels.
