“Spun came out of research into the geometric simplification of a familiar object type. Could a completely rotationally symmetrical form make a comfortable chair?

Developed through full-size test pieces, an ergonomic was established where seat, back and arms were all the same profile. The result is not immediately apparent as a chair and when upright looks more like a sculptural vessel. When lent on its side however, it 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 made using rotational plastic moulding, a very efficient and low cost manufacturing process. Plastic pellets are heated in a spinning mould, the plastic melts and flows around, adhering to the mould wall and forming a uniform wall thickness. The mould is in four parts and is machined from aluminium. The process also enables a rippled surface texture to be imparted into the chair to accentuate the form.

Spun was launched in Milan in April 2010.”

+ watch. the fluid circular movements make it seem so relaxing. this would definitely be good for a garden for chilling or maybe as an ice breaker a conversation piece in the living room.

+ i badly want to try it out at dimensione store at high street, they have it available there! but i’m scared i might scream at every tilt.

i’m gauging this would require some practice and getting used to, like the girl on the video graciously did.
