Material


A new spin on an old favorite! We intentionally designed the geometry of the Centrifuge with physics in mind. The heavy ring of material far from the center of the top maximizes rotational inertia, which increases stability and spin times. A mesmerizing, interactive piece of art for your desk.

Behind the Name

A centrifuge is a simulated cockpit that spins in a circle at high speeds. Pilots train in centrifuges to become accustomed to the high g-forces they will experience during various aircraft maneuvers.
Titanium vs. Bronze

Titanium is half the density of bronze, which makes the titanium top easier to spin and great for all ages. Spinning the bronze top can be more of a challenge at first, but once mastered, the increased mass gives it the potential for even longer spin times.
