Scooter Chair is made from original parts of the legendary Italian scooter from the 80’s. Re-using the chassis they have created an original and unique model of swivel chair. They are handmade by Spanish studio Bel & Bel in a numbered series with a large variety of color combinations to choose for your office or home.

Although it may appear like a normal swivel chair from the front, when turned around you can see how the curves of the vintage Vespa parts match that of the faux leather chair to create a sleek and ergonomic design.
To further imitate their design inspiration, each chair also comes with functioning taillights. More than 200 of these up-cycled pieces have been sold around the world, and because each and every chair is built by hand, they are all certifiably unique.
Bel & Bel is a studio-workshop founded in 2005 by the artists and designers Carles Bel and Jesus Bel. They graduated in Fine Arts from the University of Barcelona and soon realized that they were united by more things besides the name. They were no longer able to separate this curious coincidence from your surnames and they decided to incorporate it to your common project.
This project began with the readjustment of old objects into functional ones and increasingly they were watching the final designs and projecting them into more innovative, more technological and customized personal pieces.

In 2015, thanks to your growing interest in the broadest spectrum of your pieces, they moved forward and decided to collaborate with two good friends, Sebastian Perez & Roger Amat. They have helped us to turn Bel & Bel into a brand with higher productive potential.
