Racing and Emotion offers custom-built chairs that really are works of art. The company’s focus is on the Porsche 917, which is one of the most famous of all Porsche racing cars and the vehicular star of the 1971 movie “Le Mans” that actor Steve McQueen produced and starred in. R&E makes what it calls egg chairs, since they are inspired by Arne Jacobsen’s 1958 design. There are two distinct shapes produced from molded fiberglass, and they feature cloth, or optional leather seats. The Egg series starts at $6,000 per chair, while the smaller ball-type chairs sell for upward of $5,800, plus shipping. The company can also provide any color scheme you like at extra cost.
