Spun from Magis

Spun from Magis

Thomas Heatherwick has produced a startling twist on conventional furniture design with the Spun Chair. Made from a single profile rotated through 360 degrees the aptly named 'Spun' transforms the domestic seat into a beautifully rendered spinning top. When upright Spun is a sculptural vessel and it is only when it is lent on its side that the full possibilities of its form come to light. Spun allows its user to swivel in a circular rocking motion, including being able to rotate in a complete circle. It was launched in 2010.

You can snap this up for £323 from Nest.

Thanks to Claire over at Cheshire Mum for giving us the heads up on this one. If you've seen or own a chair that you think deserves to be featured, drop us an email to info@chairlover.co.uk

Chair Alphabet
There have been many attempts to make an ABC furniture. This one seems to be the longest and the most successful. A project started in 1999 as sketches and paper prototypes has really got into full swing only in 2009 and finally was presented in 2010 on a June 100x Summer Design. Original red color was changed to black and yet the projected is not completed and is still on the run. It's a design project by Roeland Otten.

Darwin Chair by Stefan Sagmeister

Darwin Chair by Stefan Sagmeister
I am loving the Darwin Chair by Stefan Sagmeister. It utilizes a free swinging structure that includes about 200 sheets of attached prints. As the top sheet gets dirty or tired, the user can simply rip it off thereby transforming the chair’s appearance (and the remaining perforation eventually forms a comfortable head rest). All sheets are printed with intricate patterns abstracting the creation of the universe, making their way through the creation of the world, the beginning of plant, animal and human life, all the way to the digital revolution.
