By looking it and its name describes it as well, we can easily find out that the designer wanted to create something that can remind us to the famous motor scooters firstly manufactured in Milan, Lambretta. It is true, that Lambretta scooter became the inspiration of Jim Plester when creating the Lambretta Chair. The materials used to create this Lambretta chair also come from the traditional scooter spare parts. We can easily find the leg shields, horn casting, badges and trim assembled together forming the shape of chair. Lambretta chair comes with various traditional the scooters’ colors and customized ones. The designer used 20 models of Lambrettas produced from 1957 to 1971, which are including the Li, TV, SX & DL/GP models.
In order to make this chair perfect, the designer took a close look to the details. Pure 100% leather is chosen to be the main material for upholstery. This part comes with customizable option, and is finished with either leather piping or double stitching. This chair offers its users a sitting experience as if riding Lambretta scooter; and the seat mechanism that enables the user to enjoy swiveling, tilting and adjusting the height gives the users extra convenience. All those elements is supported by the aluminum base.
These lambretta chairs are distinctive and cool pieces of art; not just look good but are fully functional. We use traditional lambretta components, quality leather for the upholstery, automotive quality paint and a little bit of imagination to create these unique items. With over 30 years of experience restoring lambretta’s, you are guaranteed the attention to detail on each lambretta chair, from the badges, to the smallest trim piece.
What we have created is a piece of furniture that will last for another 50 years, a fantastic investment for the future. Each chair can be fully customised to the clients needs. Ideal for design offices, trendy bars & restaurants, company brands, window dressing, the “man cave” and of course the lambretta enthusiast…
