These days, you only have a Ball chair in your office if you're an evil genius or confused enough to think it's still 1962. The clever artists at Racing & Emotion Design are out to change all that, though. The company has taken it upon themselves to slather the spherical seating, as well as an "Egg" style chair, in some of the world's most famous racing liveries.

Want to kick back in the same style as the Gulf Porsche 917? No problem. What if the Pink Pig is more your style? Racing and Emotion Design have you covered. The French designers have even worked up a chair in Ayrton Senna's helmet livery, as well as the colors found on the racer's Lotus 97T. In all, there are 21 separate liveries to chose from. We're particularly smitten with the BMW 3.0 CSL piece, though the various Gulf liveried thrones are likely to be sure winners.

Unfortunately, we won't be dragging one of these home to the lair anytime soon. The chairs each cost around $3,788 at current conversion rates, which means we'll just have to control our death ray from the comfort of the couch. Head over to Racing & Emotion or Classic Heroes to take a look at the full range.

      They need to come out with a set of billiard balls with these liveries so us common folk can afford to have something that is automotive history in art form in our man caves

        It would mess up Snooker. >_> <_< >_> But yeah, classic-race-car-livery-based billiard balls would rule!

      They look cool, but don't attempt to use one while filling out a job application.

      I wonder if they make a version with a built-in 8-track tape deck and stereo speakers, just like the ones that were sold at Muntz Cartridge City!

      I wish they didn't repeat the numbers on the side of some of the chairs, just one in the back looks cleaner, but otherwise I dig it!

      It's not an Egg chair. It's the Ball chair designed by Eero Aarnio. The Egg chair is designed by Jacobsen and looks nothing like it.
