Spin Negative Space by Daphne Zuilhof
Sometimes the coolest items have the most horrible descriptions in the world. The Spin – Negative Space design by Daphne Zuilhof is an amazing piece. In its collapsed mode the Spin (aka Spider after translation from Dutch) appears like a small stack of boards. As you slowly unfold the Spin it transforms form one geometric form to another until in its final form it becomes a beautiful stool. Why do we say horrible descriptions? When you read the story on Daphne’s site you get lost in the artistic “space talk” and the real magic of the design disappears. What makes the chair special is its simple starting point and the fascinating steps until completion. It is a magical plaything for adults with a useful final form.
The Spin is created out of 60 separate pieces allowing its flowing motion as you unfold and assemble the final stool. You will just need to remember how to do it.
