COCKPIT | Task chair


Task chair with 5-Spoke base



Design Year

Neither a car seat nor a pure piece of furniture or design.‎ It is a contemporary hybrid that brings together two brands, two imaginations, two industrial philosophies to celebrate the 70thanniversary of the Maranello carmaker.‎ A new object that perfectly translates a dream into reality.‎ This is an office chair that captures the excitement, speed and dynamism of the driver’s seat, as well as the passion for racing.‎ And that transmits a pleasant sensation of how the backrest and seat support movements and posture.‎ A blend of automotive know-how and the culture of living.‎
Conceived and designed by the Ferrari Design team directed by Flavio Manzoni, which designed the recent Ferrari models (including the LaFerrari Aperta, the GTC4Lusso and the 812 Superfast) , its iconic profile launches itself into the space enveloping its body.‎
The Cockpit is a place where concentration, quick reflexes and intuition join with a will to win.‎ It is a space where the driver comes into contact with their car, assumes the correct driving position on the seat and drives the vehicle around corners.‎ The contact between the body and the seat creates dynamic sensations that help the driver to control the car as efficiently as possible.‎ For the moment two versions are available, the President and the Executive.‎ Both comprise a reclining base and seat, integrated with two different backrests.‎ The President is the managerial model with a high backrest that offers generous support for the top half of the body and which is inspired by the ergonomics of competitive racing seats.‎ The Executive model, a chair that adapts to all work contexts, has a deliberately low and narrow backrest to ensure freedom of movement.‎ The central band on the seat takes its cue from racing seats.‎ The materials are the same as those used in Ferrari cars.‎ The external shell is moulded from carbon or alutex.‎ Poltrona Frau has concentrated the very highest ergonomic knowhow in the mechanism used to adjust the position of the backrest and the height of the seat.‎ The swivel device sports the same design and mechanical elements as the steering wheel, the 5-spoke base comes in the two polished or powder-coated aluminium finishes in matt racing grey.‎ For the leather upholstery, the Ferrari Design Centre team has chosen shades and finishes inspired by the trim of the three Tailor-Made service lines, which allow for the customised configuration of the car: Scuderia, Classica and Inedita.‎ Cockpit can also be customised.‎
