Bring a sense of wonder to your desktop as you stimulate your brain with this irresistible rotating paperweight. Spinning this illusion device creates a mesmerizing effect that is both calming and addictive. Made of unglazed bone china with a ball-bearing spinning mechanism.

The Illusion Spinner was designed by Oscar de la Hera Gomez for MoMA’s collaboration with the School of Visual Art’s Products of Design MFA program. de la Hera Gomez devised this intricate design through mathematical and spatial analysis to morph from an orderly gridded pattern to a dynamic swirling motif when in motion.
