While it may not look like the most comfortable office chair in the world, if I ever put a nice table in the man cave, it’s absolutely going to be surrounded with a few of these carbon fiber seats from GruppeM.
GruppeM is well known for high-end, hand-built carbon fiber intakes, titanium exhausts and some very nice aero pieces, but now they seem to have just created a whole new level of home furnishings for the ultimate man cave. Not just a standard looking chair made of carbon, they took it to another level by styling them as racing seats.
The body and base are made of real hand-crafted carbon fiber —not an overlay—with a nice wrap-around effect for all those lateral Gs you might experience at the table. Whether eating, drinking, playing cards or watching an F1 race, support is always a good thing.
The chair is one solid piece, and while it’s made of a hard resin, it’s designed to feel both warm and “soft,” by their description. No luck convincing them to send one to my “lab” for testing, unfortunately.
As with their carbon intakes, the seats are completely handmade with serial number plates. Shipping is direct from Japan, so you can’t just go pick them up, but the 2-4 week wait would be worth it.
