Lambretta, a famous line of motor scooters originally produced in Milan, inspired designer Jim Plester to generate an intriguing collection of chairs. Produced by Iconic Design and style, each Lambretta chair is created from standard scooter spares this involves the leg shields, horn casting, badges and trim. The shade of the bodywork can be based mostly on traditional Lambretta colours, or can be far more modern based on the client’s requirements. the designer of these chairs is a self-confessed Lambretta enthusiast and has been so for more than thirty many years. Every chair is based mostly on one particular of the twenty versions of Lambrettas produced from 1957 to 1971 this involves the Li, Television, SX & DL/GP designs.
The attention to detail does not stop at the bodywork. The upholstery is produced from 100% leather and can be colored, despite the fact that black leather is the standard. Every chair is completed with either leather piping or double stitching. The upper lumber panel is embroidered with the Lambretta brand. A top quality seat mechanism was used, which gives the chair complete swivel, tilt and height modify. This is all mounted on a polished aluminum base, with designer castor wheels finishing off this exclusive searching chair. [Images and information presented via e-mail by Iconic Style]
