Round & Round.

Tuesday, February 10, 2015

To anyone having a rough start to the week: press play on the video below. The film, barely a minute long, showcases Japanese designer Shunsuke Umiyama's newest work, bamboo copTer, a mobile made from a collection of simple wooden toys known as taketombo ("helicopters" propelled into flight when spun between a child's palms). It's spare and stunning, and just watching it in motion is enough to soothe even the most harried of nerves — scroll down and see for yourself.


Find more at MicroWorks, here. Thanks, Spoon & Tamago.
