Motorbike Furniture by Italian designer Joe Velluto

View all 15 Photos

Presented at Milan Design Week, this stationary motorcycle, the JVLT014, functions as a playful piece of furniture – in this case a seat. The unique piece was created by Italian designer Joe Velluto and motorcycle company NorthEastCustom to suggest new possibilities in the realm of custom builds. While the design still has an engine, it now holds a glass vessel instead of a petrol tank, a child’s abacus in place of an odometer, and wood and wool rather than metal and plastic ornamentation.
