Elegant design piece to mark anniversary


To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the first shell seat, the racing sport classic presents itself in an unusual new form: With the RECARO Office Chair, motorsport fans now have the chance to take dynamic and sportive styling from the streets directly to the workplace. 

This exclusive office chair, with side bolsters made of high-quality, perforated leather, is designed based on the successful RECARO Sportster CS model. The distinctive upholstery in houndstooth pattern, the original logo of the shell seat, and the rallye-style “50 Years” emblem on the headrest bring the 1967 RECARO Rallye back to life. 

An absolute must-have, not only for automobile enthusiasts: The elegant, retro-styled piece was fabricated as a special, limited edition of 500 units. If you want to secure your RECARO seat for the office – or are looking for an exclusive gift – you will find just the thing right in time for the pre-holiday season: This unusual anniversary seat is available for 5,550 euros (including VAT) at RECARO retailers:

Fast seat for sportive drivers


In 1967, it was the origin of racing seats approved for road use: The RECARO Rallye was the first shell seat to continue the revolution in automotive seating two years after the market launch of the first RECARO sports seat. 

Its body-contoured seat shell made of fiberglass-reinforced polyester resin met the highest standards in lightweight design and safety. RECARO also offered special features in terms of seat comfort: The Rallye was adjustable lengthways on the runners, and its seat height was adjustable at the front and rear for a variable seat angle – basic requirements for an ergonomically good seating position in the car. 

The Rallye also set standards in terms of its visual appeal: While the side panels were made of perforated Ambla leather, the center strip was available with a distinctive houndstooth pattern.

Stylish seating, not only on the go


Highest craftsmanship and unmistakable design: RECARO office products are equal to their automotive counterparts. For RECARO Automotive Seating always puts the human being at the center of its product development. Boasting the best possible ergonomic design, RECARO products have been leading the way for decades.

Thanks to their comprehensive experience and know-how, the experts at RECARO are also able to perfectly create anatomically adapted seat contours in terms of production methods and workmanship. This long-standing expertise, combined with the clear RECARO seat design, makes the RECARO Office Chair a highlight at the workplace.

The backrest of the RECARO Office Chair is adorned with the original logo of the first shell seat, the RECARO Rallye from 1967.
The anniversary seat is rounded off by the rallye-style “50 Years” emblem on the headrest.

Traditionally in the pole position


Innovation as tradition: RECARO sets standards – and has been doing so for more than 50 years. With premium seats that meet the highest standards in ergonomics, safety and design:

from 1906

The roots of RECARO go back to the Stuttgarter Karosseriewerk Reutter, founded in 1906 by the master saddler Wilhelm Reutter. The company produces car bodies for all well-known manufacturers, including the interior appointments. The step towards seat specialization therefore only seems logical. In 1963, REutter CAROsserie becomes the seat specialist RECARO.
