Half sculpture half chair, the Spun seat was born out of pure creative curiosity: can a functional chair be shaped from a simple profile rotated 360 degrees? 
The answer first came in a limited series of metal chairs (don't miss the making-of pics taken from Heatherwick's website) and ended up this spring being mass produced with rotational moulding by Magis. 
The unusual shape and the superficial texture enhance the sculptural nature of the chair, which is by no means a secondary feature but one of the two equally convincing faces of this object.

  • Interview: Eugeni Quitllet
    When we first saw his name close to that of Philippe Starck we googled, with no luck. There was no human trace of Eugeni Quitllet and we thought, for a brief moment, that he could be an invention, some sort of imaginary alter ego created by his famously provocative partner. But shortly after all this revealed to be a product of our unquiet imagination: he is for real, thank goodness.
