bugatti grand prix car inspired desk

We have seen a range of automobile themed furniture in the past, and the latest we have is the Bugatti inspired Executive Desk from Luzzo Bespoke. The bespoke desk takes styling cues from the Bugatti Grand Prix racing cars of the late ‘20s and early ‘30s. Details taken from the design of the cars were used in different forms or scales within the design. The drive gears for the height adjustment are a scaled-up version of the Winfield carburetor synchronization quadrants from a Type 57, and the drawer fronts reflect the honeycombed grill.

The construction of the Bugatti Grand Prix car inspired desk is influenced by the methods used by Bugatti in that time. Where there would have been cast aluminum parts, they have machined them from billet with the rest of the construction made up of aluminum frames clad in riveted aluminum sheet. The level of detail incorporated into the desk is an upshot of over 3000 hours of CAD, machining, polishing, sheet metal work and lacquering.

Moreover, they have included an Apple Mac computer, which is deployed via a motorized mechanism and disappears into the desk at the touch of a button. There are self-closing lockable drawers. The desk has then been finished in French racing blue lacquer with a tan leather writing area, which is very reminiscent of the Bugatti’s of that era.

The Bugatti Type 35 inspired desk retails for £150,000 ($242,300).

Thanks, Luzzo Bespoke
