SQUARE WAVE | the Mind-Bending Kinetic Spinner

€133,591

2,309

Square wave is a unique piece of kinetic design inspired by the Fibonacci sequence, the basic structure that is the make up of every living thing. Just spin it to get surprised by a series of mind-bending optical illusions, and unexpected hypnotizing revolutions

 Square wave is made up of 21 connected metal rods which curve and mutate unexpectedly with the introduction of energy. The repetition of identical elements is precisely calibrated to create complex fluid structures. 

Designed in the UK and made in Italy, Square Wave combines iconic natural forms with mathematical formulae. Each bend and curl of the material is precisely calibrated to create a seamlessly integrated mechanism.  

We are thrilled to announce that the highly requested HANGER PACK is now available as a new reward. By choosing it, you’ll receive:

- Square Wave of your choice
  - 10 foot of 0,08 in thick cord
  - 10 foot of 0,16 in thick cord
  - Metal swivel double hook
  - Wall anchor and threaded hook

This is everything you need to hang Square Wave from your ceiling, wall, library, ceiling beams and so forth, making it a stunning accessory for your home.

Different color combinations available

Square Wave is available in 3 spectacular finishes: metallic silver, eclipse bronze, and lunar gold. Each one creates unique mesmerizing reflections and three diverse optical illusions.   



TECH SPECS & SHIPPING INFO

Square Wave is manufactured in Italy in a factory with a 30 years history in metal machining. Each unit is assembled by hand and tested.

Square Wave is 9,8 x 9,8 in (25x25 cm) and it's made of high quality chrome plated steel and is suitable for both indoor and outdoor usage (yes, you can hang it in your garden or patio).

Each Square Wave will be shipped from Italy and each shipment will be tracked and insured. You will receive and email with your tracking number as soon as your parcel leaves our warehouse.

Square Wave was designed by the award winning artist Ivan Black. His work reflects a fascination and kinship with the mathematical patterns found everywhere in nature e.g. waves, leaves, shells, the human form etc. Tending towards the minimalist in design, his work reveals how order silently governs our seemingly disorderly world.  

Square Wave is the first item of the collection Ivan Black x Atellani. Our aim is to combine beautiful pieces of kinetic art with precision mechanical machinery, making these incredible sculptures available worldwide. 

SQUARE WAVE IN ACTION

POWERED BY www.atellani.com

Atellani already brought to life and delivered products to more than 10.000 backers worldwide through crowdfunding campaigns. 



Background

Square Wave is the results of years of prototyping and iterations. Tiny hand-made tweaks and adjustments were made in order to find the smoothest balance between weight and length of the metal rods. 

The second step was converting this artisanal method into a replicable process. In order to do so we have relied on a first-class Italian factory, with 30 years of experience. 



This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 650+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $300MM raised between them.

Risks and challenges

Developing and delivering a product is a complicated process that can't be 100% risk free. All production runs can encounter unexpected issues and delays.
However, we have well-established relationships with reliable manufacturers, and since everything is produced locally by experienced factories, we are positive that we can keep under control potential logistical delays.
As soon as we reach our goal, we will personally assemble, test and ship each Square Wave. If the volume overwhelms us, we will get assistance from a professional post-production company.
If you believe in us and you choose to back Square Wave, you will be updated frequently and you will always be up to speed with the progress and development of the project.
We will do whatever it takes to fulfill our promise and run everything as smooth and streamlined as possible!
