this is the spun chair, by thomas heatherwick for magis. made from a single profile rotated through 360 degrees, this seat is designed to move when sat in. being a fan of spinning tops, i definitely want to try this one out.

the above version is made from rotational moulded polyethylene, and was shown at the milan furniture fair last month. what i have just learned from ollie is that he also did a steel and copper version for london gallery 'haunch of venison' (see below images), which looks nice and shiny!
