This is the an absolutely stunning, in fact showstopping office chair made by combining a brand new donor office chair with a seat removed from the passenger side of an iconic Ferrari 360 Modena. It has been thoroughly cleaned and is in very nice overall condition as you can see in the pictures above. The seat is upholstered in its original beige leather with black piping. Although the chair shows very well is does have some condition issues as shown in the pictures. It will be shipped partially disassembled and will require about 10 minutes to put together. Only simple hand tools are required.
This chair retains the Ferrari reclining mechanism, adjustable headrest height and headrest tilt. And, it has all the standard features you would expect from an office chair, such as swivel, tilt, tension adjust, height adjustment etc. The arms are also adjustable vertically and laterally. This seat has lumbar support and adjustable backrest bolster support as well. This is a very unique item that is near impossible to find anywhere and would be the ultimate office chair for an enthusiast. Please feel free to ask any questions. Thank you.
I put together the first of these chairs after having a couple of store-bought office chairs with foam cushions that quickly became flattened and useless and made it feel like I was sitting on a park bench at work all day. Automobile seats are designed for long-distance comfort and I thought they might make a great office chair. It turns out they do. They provide all-day comfort in the office just like they do in the cars. They typically use a combination of padding and steel springs rather than a single piece of foam over plywood or plastic like most office chairs and they simply don't degrade like regular office chairs. I've been using a Mercedes chair in my office since August 2014 and couldn't be happier. One day a coworker saw my new chair, said it was the coolest thing she's ever seen and thought I should try making them for other people too, so here we are. I've learned a few things by using one of these chairs daily and by having built many others. So, I've upgraded the design of this chair as a result.
The weight capacity of this chair is 300 pounds and the top of the seat cushion can be adjusted from 18.5" - 21.5."
