Prepare to be spun off your feet when you see these fantastic seats designed by Thomas Heatherwick of Heatherwick Studio in the UK. ‘Spun’ is a stool, chair, sculptural object and spinning top all designed into one. Through rotational plastic moulding the design of the seat, back and arms all have the same profile. Although not immediately obvious as a chair, when lent on its side, 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.
The dimensions are 91 x 91 x 66cm and the chair-slash-spinning top is suitable for outdoor use. The trendy Spun Chair from Magis retails for R6400, available from Crema Design, First Floor “The Portside”, corner Main and Upper Portswood Roads, Green Point, Cape Town.
