InformationSpun, designed by Thomas Heatherwick for Magis, is a stool, chair, sculptural object of beauty, and spinning top into one. Spun came out of research into the geometric simplification of a familiar object type : could a completely rotationally symmetrical form make a comfortable chair?
Through rotational plastic moulding a design has been realised where the seat, back and arms are all the same profile. The result is not immediately obvious as a chair. When lent on its side though, Spun, forms a comfortable and functional chair that the sitter can rock from side to side in, or even spin round in a complete circle.
Spun is available in a range of matt colours and are made from polyethylene making them suitable for outdoor use. The polycarbonate transparent versions are suitable for indoor use only.
