The Spun Chair came out of research into the geometric simplification of a familiar object type. Could a completely rotationally symmetrical form make a comfortable chair? The result is not immediately apparent as a chair and when upright looks more like a sculptural vessel. When lent on its side however, the Spun Chair forms a comfortable and functional chair that the sitter can rock from side to side, or even spin around 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.
The Spun Chair is in the Cooper Hewitt Permanent Collection.
