Stop throwing your supercar keys on the café table trying to impress the ladies, sorry, business partners – you can subtly hint at your bank account using this cool and utterly expensive office chair.
It takes a sizeable bank account for one to afford the perks of being a Ferrari driver, and because the Prancing Horse is like Disney, they can make money out of seemingly anything and everything. And that includes the new Cockpit office chair. Yes, this is what it reads on the label – an office chair, crated in cooperation with the famous Italian furniture company Poltrona Frau. The Design comes courtesy of the Ferrari Design Centre, and team leader Flavio Manzoni has been responsible for arrivals such as the LaFerrari Aperta, GTC4Lusso and 812 Superfast.
Thus, the seat would look the part in any of them, and the Cockpit is even offered in two versions: President and the Executive. The high-back President takes the form of a “racing seat” while the Executive follows closer the classic molded chair styling. Ferrari even says the chairs come with the same materials as in their famous cars, with the Cockpit’s exterior shell coming with either carbon or alutex – an aluminum glass fiber. There’s even a customization service, so naturally these don’t come cheap – President is 10,000 euros and the Executive can be had for 7,500 euros.
