Created by Mindaugas Zillionis – one of the most famous Baltic designers – SPYNDI is a modern piece of customizable furniture that can “turn into any shape you wish according to your fantasy.” Whether it’s a chaise lounge or a coffee table, SPYNDI consists of 60 handmade wooden pieces that connect together to make a 21st-century furniture piece.
Inspired by the human spine and comprised of 1260 small wood pieces, SPYNDI has a smooth organic finish, is extremely flexible, and meant for both indoor as well as outdoor environments. Designed with ergonomics in mind, users can create any shape they wish by sliding and attaching one element to the other – transforming your 60 handmade pieces into a fashionable piece of home décor.
Taking close to nine years of extensive product design work, Zillionis describes his first pass at making the highly acclaimed SPYNDI: “If you look at the sketches and first prototypes, you would think that we created a super complicated biomechanical device rather than a chair. It was a long process but the result is perfect.” With its first concept developed in 2007, it’s easy to see why SPYNDI won first prize in the international design competition.
So how does SPYNDI work? As a multi-functional design piece, each element is carefully constructed to seamlessly connect to one another. Each element has an A and B-side allowing it to be attached – creating a different angle: A+A, B+B, A+B, B+A. SPYNDI has over 75 wood elements in its foundation kit and with close to 25 different design manuals, users can assemble modern chairs, stools, tables, chaise lounges, partitions, etc.
Capturing the creativity of a world-renowned designer, users are able to customize their collection of furniture pieces any way they see fit. The user is not limited to the 25 pre-set designs accompanying the SPYNDI set; instead, there’s room to create your own modern piece of furniture.
Backed by a lifetime warranty and taking only 15 minutes to assemble one of the 25 furniture designs, SPYNDI is the perfect way to incorporate a 21st-century piece of home décor into your living space that is fully customizable. It will certainly turn some heads and at the same time, spark conversation during your next house party.
