Spun, the Rotating Stool

Intriguing to look at. Practical in use? Well, time will tell I guess. We hear that Magis will be launching Spun, a rotating outdoor stool designed by British architect and designer Thomas Heatherwick, at the next Salone Internazionale del Mobile in Milan, 14-19 April 2010.
Magis Spun Stool
The chair is in rotational moulded polyethylene and is, allegedly, suitable for outdoor use. For me, the jury is still out and I wonder if this is design for the sake of design with little or no consideration for its practical use. I hope I am wrong, however, and that it proves to be a huge success.
