I Pine for You

Pining for a unique way to relieve some of that restless energy in the office? Give this wooden work of art a whirl! Place the brass dowel between your hands and rub to the right or left to create an oversized pinecone or a twirling helix. Artist John Edmark was inspired to create this desktop wonder by observing the beauty of proportion as seen in nature and in the breathtaking complexities of phenomena hidden from the naked eye. Taking aesthetic cues from the Fibonacci spiral (or golden ratio)--a mathematically perfect shape observed in nature and throughout the universe--Edmark crafts slats of reclaimed beech wood and plywood into a piece of dynamic office decor that provides endless inspiration. When not in use, this desk accent rests on a stained birch stand. Made in USA and Taiwan.

WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.

brass, beech wood, plywood

        Bought this for my somewhat fidgety college student son. He is completely fascinated by it and packing it to take back to school. Great quality, really unique and any configuration is its own piece of art.

        It's expensive, but you will find that everyone who sees it is intrigued by it. My oldest two sons figured it out in about 5 minutes, buy still kept playing with it.
