Must-See: Old Vespas Turned Into Swivel Chairs

This takes unique to a whole new level!


Do you ever imagine yourself roaming the alleys of Italy in a bike with the wind in your hair and the locals watching you pass by? These converted swivel chairs may not be ideal for that, but they will surely catch the attention of your colleagues. 

Designed by Carles Bel and Jesus Bel, who also founded Barcelona-based studio workshop Bel & Bel, the Scooter Chairs are made from the chassis of retired original Vespas and boast of high-quality craftsmanship.

The chairs come in a variety of colors and upholstered in imitation-leather that's quite close to the real thing. It is also equipped with adjustable hydraulic pistons, a reclining feature and rear functioning lights. 

Since they’re limited edition and a hit with clients, the company is still working on being able to accommodate all the orders. In the meantime, if you want to take a closer look at this stunning piece, one of them can be found on dislay at the Piaggo museum in Italy.
