Spun Rotating Chair


Brand : Magis

Designer : Thomas Heatherwick


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 when lent on its side Spun allows its user to swivel in a circular rocking motion, including being able to rotate in a complete circle.

The Magis Spun Chair is suitable for indoor and outdoor use.

SIZE: w91cm, h65/78, seat height 44cm

Award-winning British designer Thomas Heatherwick founded Heatherwick Studio in 1994 with the aim of creating unique design projects. Heatherwick's team of designers, architects and makers work in a combined studio and workshop in central London's King’s Cross. The Heatherwick Studio’s projects range from bridges and buildings to contemporary furniture and large-scale works of public art. His best known work may be the Olympic flame design for the London Summer Olympics 2012. Amongst Heatherwick's most successful 'small-scale' projects is the now iconic Spun Chair for Italian furniture brand Magis design. This rotating lounge chair came out of research into geometric simplification and experimentation into materials and processes.


Founded in 1976 in the bustling north eastern corner of Italy by a newcomer to the furniture business, Eugenio Perazza, Magis is today a giant international design laboratory that constantly puts itself to the test, seeking technological sophistication and employing a highly diversified workforce. Magis embraces the creativity of leading global designers (Richard Sapper, Jasper Morrison, Stefano Giovannoni, Marc Newson, Konstantin Grcic, Ron Arad, the Bouroullecs, Robin Day, Pierre Paulin, Jerszy Seymour, Naoto Fukasawa, Thomas Heatherwick and many others) and channels it towards objects perched on the cutting edge.
