Bentley motors is working to design barber chairs.
Owning a Bentley would be a dream come true for many people. Those high price tags get in the way though for some folks. Well there’s always another way to experience a little slice of Bentley heaven.
The automobile company recently announced their newest line of work which features barbers’ chairs. Bentley Motors has partnered with men’s lifestyle company, Pankhurst, and the chairs are installed in their barbershop in London. Designers from the car making business have given 6 once-standard barber chairs a major boost by adding finishes and material from luxurious Bentley model vehicles.
The chairs didn’t only undergo an exterior makeover, as the suspension mechanisms were also improved. Different hides were used to craft the covers and the arms received new wood.
In another unusual collaboration, luxury car manufacturer Aston Martin joined forces with pram maker Silver Cross to design and carry out a baby stroller. Featuring aluminum alloy wheels, windproof fabrics, leather accents and air ride suspension, the infant mobile had a selling price of approximately $3,000.
