Crafted in honor of Milan Design Week, the Cockpit Desk Chair is exactly what it sounds like: a desk chair meant to resemble a racing seat from Ferrari’s stable. Helmed by Ferarri’s own head of design Flavio Manzoni, the chair comes in two versions: the President and the smaller Executive. Both iterations not only feature the same upholstery Ferrari uses in its cars, but come with a carbon fiber external shell while the aluminum base takes cues from the mechanisms found in a Ferrari steering wheel.
Said Poltrona Frau general manager Nicola Coropulis:
The idea that Ferrari proposed to us was to bring the emotions that one feels while driving a Ferrari car into a seat that could fit a working environment. The choice of a chair was quite natural. We avoided just putting some wheels under a Ferrari car seat, and we created an object that is unique on its own.
The Cockpit Desk Chair will be available soon at select Poltrona Frau dealers and flagships worldwide.
