Singer Lady Gaga has commissioned a 24-carat gold plated “chariot” to be created by a luxury brand to help her move around as she recovers from hip surgery.
The Judas singer has been left reliant on a wheelchair after having an operation to repair a labral tear on her right hip last month, and she is recuperating with the help of the extravagant movement aid, which she commissioned from luxury brand Mordekai.
Ken Borochov – who is the creative genius behind Mordekai – designed the chair and although he has worked with Gaga before he was shocked to receive such an unusual request.
In an official statement, Borochov said: “I certainly wasn’t expecting that phone call and have never done a wheelchair but am always up for a challenge and was thrilled to create what I affectionately dubbed the ‘Chariot’, a chair fit only for a queen.”
The luxurious wheelchair is completely gold plated, including the rims, and also features a black leather seat – which is inspired by vintage motorcycle jackets – and a removable leather canopy.
