Spun chair by Thomas Heatherwick
Updated: Jan 30, 2020
Designed by Thomas Heatherwick the Spun chair is a spinning chair made of rotational moulded polyethylene. The peripheral edge and tip of the chair has a leather trim to prevent damage to the floor. Each chair is assembled with six spinnings of thick metal, welded together and polished to give a uniform single form. The handmade spun pieces are formed by pressing large sheets of metal against a rotating cast iron form using a large paddle. The sit is very comfortable and functional and one can spin round in a complete circle.
