Original Parts From Vintage Vespas Turned Into Strikingly Modern Office Chairs

The legendary Vespa motorbike has been reimagined as a unique piece of office furniture. Created by Spanish studio Bel & Bel, the Scooter Chair uses original parts from the Italian vehicle to form a striking silhouette. The 1980s-style chassis has been cleverly upcycled as the seat back, with its unusual shape paying homage to the Vespa's iconic design.

Although the Scooter Chair looks unconventional, it has all the features you'd come to expect from modern desk seating–it reclines, has a reinforced internal structure for sturdiness, and a base with a hydraulic piston for height adjustment. In addition, the furniture is ergonomic and upholstered with faux leather and soft tread-silent wheels.

Each chair is customized and handmade by Bel & Bel in a numbered series. There are a variety color schemes available to complement any office.

Visually, elements of the Earth and sky are the actors for the feelings we cannot easily imagine. Together, the sun, mountains, and more depict “narratives of conflict, entrapment, longing, and precarious hope.” These symbols allow Liu to seem removed, yet make the pieces deeply personal.
