About this project
Is it possible to invent a new piece of furniture? - Yes. We did it! We created a piece of furniture that can turn to be any shape you wish according to one's fantasy. Every architect dreams to create a perfect Church, so every designer dreams to create a perfect chair. After 9 years of dedicated work we proudly announce that we reinvented the chair!
Idea: The SPYNDI consists of 60/75 pieces of handmade wooden elements, which can be attached to one another.
Concept: Inspired by the human spine - very flexible and very strong - fitting any individual.
SPYNDI is an example of everlasting design and quality, a perfect piece of multifunctional furniture, handmade of 1260/1605 small segments of natural wood, which finishing is sensationally smooth to touch. It fits perfectly to fast moving, innovative and playful lifestyle of 21st century.
SPYNDI is not just a piece of furniture. It turns into an interesting and joyful creative game while assembling new shape.
"I loved the incredibly clever SPYNDI chair which can be tailored to fit the size and shape of any individual."
Chris Luebkeman, Global Director Foresight, Research and Innovation at ARUP
"I had no doubt giving SPYNDI the first place during the international design competition "Non-format". It has it all: design, functionality and is indeed incredibly beautiful."
Roberto Palomba, Architect and Designer Palomba Serafini Associati
Mindaugas Zilionis is one of the most famous Baltic designers. His award-winning designs have brought him much international acclaim and the SPYNDI is not an exception. The SPYNDI idea was first presented in 2007 when it won the first prize in the international design competition “Non Format”.
First SPYNDI sketches:
“If you would looked at the sketches and first prototypes, you would think that we created a super complicated biomechanical device rather than a chair. It was a long process but the result is perfect”
Mindaugas Zilionis, SPYNDI Creator
How does it work?
Create any shape you wish from our advice assembly instruction, just slide in and attach one element to the other, choose the right side according to the curve you want to form.
Each element has an A and B side allowing it to be attached creating a different angle and hereby a different design A+A; B+B, A+B, B+A Get inspired by our visual instructions below. It works simple as that!
We created a profile system of 45 long and 15 short/ 60 long and 15 ahort solid natural wood elements that allow just in 15 min. to assemble different chairs, stools, tables, chaise - longues, partitions etc. It takes just one unique SPYNDI element shape which provides endless assembling possibilities! It is so easy to create your own shapes or just use our ideas and advice for shapes! Together with the SPYNDI we will deliver assembling manuals of 25 our favorite designs.

Risks and challenges
To be best prepared for the challenges ahead, we've partnered with supply chain and manufacturing experts who can provide professional advice and help us to tackle challenges in production, engineering and retail management.
During the production process, we expect to make minor changes, to optimize the design for production.
Although it's difficult to prepare for every unforeseen circumstance, we are certain to face unexpected challenges throughout this journey and will do our best to solve them quickly.
