After undergoing hip surgery last month, the singer turned to furniture designer told Ken Borochov of luxury label Mordekai to create a custom wheelchair for her. And Borochov certainly didn't disappoint, creating a head-turning 24-karat gold plated chair that will have Gaga riding out her recovery in style! Ken says he wasn't expecting the phone call, as he has never done a wheelchair, but is always up for a challenge and was thrilled to create what he dubbed the Chariot, a chair fit only for a queen. So what exactly went into creating this pop queen's new ride?
For an edgy yet durable look, Burachov styled the tufted leather seats to look like a motorcycle jacket and added some seriously stylish spoke rims that are sure to mesmerize onlookers as Gaga wheels her way through town. But his masterpiece is just as functional as it is fabulous; it features a removable canopy and even reclines should she start to feel fatigued.
This isn't the first head-turning piece Borochov's created for Lady Gaga. He's designed a couple of crowns for the star's performances, as well as the infamous gold claw she wore to launch her Fame fragrance at Harrods in London. But the Chariot ranks as one of his fiercest accessories yet.
