Spun: The fun chair that lets you rock and spin

One look at this chair, and you might think it’s a vessel on potter’s wheel. The fun begins when you take a seat, or rather take a spin.

Spun by Herman Miller breaks conventions with its design. It lets you rock and spin, rotating a full 360 degrees.

A spinning top of a chair is Thomas Heatherwick’s brainchild. Spun’s playful possibilities result from research into the geometric simplification of a familiar object type. Using full-size test pieces, Heatherwick arrived at a form with seat, back, and arms at all the same profile to achieve a symmetrically comfortable chair.

The chair is available in Dark Purple, Grey Anthracite, Red and White colors.

Price: INR 65,000 onwards
