magis spun chair

Design Thomas Heatherwick, 2010
Rotational molded polyethylene or polycarbonate
Made by Magis

Spun 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, Spun 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.

Two years later, the Bombo stool designed by Stefano Giovannoni would gain enormous success and cultivate an imitable style.

Magis Spun Chair

Functional and fun art is how I would describe this chair. The piece brings joy, wonder, and interest to the room. I’ve admired the design for years, and am so happy to have finally purchased one for our home.

Our family saw these in the basement of the Cooper Hewitt and all took a spin. I agonized over the price tag for over a year before purchasing one - I waited for a sale and bought it for myself as a gift. I bought it for a couple of reasons. #1: I want designs like this to exist and the only way for that to happen is to by supporting the designer - that’s also why I bit the bullet and didn’t buy a knock off. #2: The chair is ridiculously fun. What other chair can you say that about? #3 it’s comfortable #4 it’s attractive. #5 You could rationalize that it helps you strengthen your core if you need another reason.

The chair itself is sturdy, looks exactly as shown in the picture. Definitely put it on a non-skid surface like carpet or a rug under it. I bought the gray one and have it in my living room. It is a delight. I don’t regret my purchase for a moment.

They have two of these at our local library, and We liked them so much I wanted to buy one for at home. Unfortunately they are out of my price range but if you can afford it I’d get one. Fun for adults and kids. Seems indestructible.
