The similarities between this desk chair and a very expensive sports car abound. For one thing, the chair is indeed very expensive, at $6,000. For another (possibly the most important similarity) it was designed by a guy who designs sports cars—Ken Okuyama, who did the Ferrari Enzo and the Porsche 911. A third, and also important similarity is that it looks kind of ridiculous and you really don't need one, and if you saw a guy sitting in one you would probably think, "What's that guy's problem?"
