Description/

Spun began as an exploration of metal spinning: a manufacturing technique most commonly used for making lampshades or timpani drums. 旋转椅最初是对金属旋压的探索,这是一种最常用于制作灯罩或定音鼓的制造技术。 When exploring the spinning process, the studio team wondered whether it would be possible to create a comfortable, functional object to sit on from a rotationally symmetrical form. 工作室团队在探索旋压过程时,希望创造出既有舒适性,又有功能性的物体,以旋转对称的形式形成座位。 To understand the geometry and the ergonomics, the studio experimented with making full-size models which was gradually tweaked and refined to the optimum shape. When the first full-size prototype was spun in aluminium it was not only comfortable but surprisingly enjoyable to sit on, with its capacity to rotate and rock in three dimensions. 为理解几何形状和人体工程,工作室制作出全尺寸模型,并逐渐调整和完善到最佳形状。用铝制成的第一个全尺寸样本模型,不仅舒适,还让人有着出乎意料的愉悦感,能够在三个维度上旋转和摇摆。 The studio produced a limited series of highly finished metal chairs with master spinners in Italy and finished by specialist craftsmen in the UK. 工作室在意大利生产了少量的经过高精度加工的金属旋转椅,并由英国的专业工匠进行饰面加工。 Each Spun chair is comprised of six metal spinnings which are welded together. Once formed, the surface is treated with a finish: mirror-polished, copper polished or oxidised steel. For the final stage, soft, UK-sourced leather is hand-fitted to the peripheral edge and base. The Spun chair is an edition of 35, each of which are signed and numbered by Thomas Heatherwick. 每把旋转椅由六个焊接在一起的金属旋轴组成。成型后,表面会经过镜面抛光、铜抛光或抗氧化钢的饰面处理。在最后阶段,将英国就地取材的柔软皮革手工贴合到边缘和底部。每一版旋转椅共35把,每把椅子都由托马斯·赫斯维克亲笔签名和编号。
