As anybody who has seen or personally created spin art knows, the power of centrifugal forces can lead to some pretty impressive results. But how might you apply the same psychedelic effect to physical goods?

For industrial designer Maor Aharon, this question became the basis for his recent experiment “Matter of Motion” – a project that took the foundation of spin art and elevated it to explorations in materials, motion and shape.

Driven by the goal of creating new aesthetic characteristics that represent the concepts of “freezing a moment” in the production process as a one-man production line, Aharon ultimately developed a new lo-fi technique for casting various materials using centrifugal force:

Says Aharon:

“The first products manufactured in this process was a series of stools made of polymer resins that highlight the capabilities of the technique, such as combining different materials (wood and metal inserts) during the casting, showing multiple colors in a single object, and combining soft and hard materials together.”
