Heatherwick Studio
SPUN, 2010
Polyethylene

The process of metal spinning used traditionally to make circular metal objects by pressing flat sheets of metal against a shaped former while they both rotate. After extensive research and experimentation, Heatherwick Studio produced an ergonomic form that works as a chair, whichever way it is rotated.

To achieve this in a single form, the seat had to be capable of serving as a back support and the back support had to make a comfortable seat. The studio collaborated with the Italian furniture manufacturer, Magis, to develop a version made of rotation-molded plastic.
