Spun, 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. So if you’ve never been one for sitting still, the Spun chair is for you. Rock or spin your way to creativity or relaxation, indoors or out. Bright and whimsical, it’s a chair that defies definition.
