Designer: Paul Schatz
Designed In: 1929
The Oloid was invented by Paul Schatz (1898-1979). Inspired by his previous discovery of the Invertible Cube and the fascinating forms rendered visible in the course of that object’s inversions, he derived the harmonious curvilinear form of the Oloid from the unusual spatial geometry.
Item Description: Roll the Oloid down a smooth, slightly inclined surface and you will witness its meandering, three-dimensional movement. The rhythmic motion specific to the Oloid makes it eminently suitable for a Oloid range of technical applications including water treatment and clarification, as an agitator or stirrer in bioengineering processes, or as means of propulsion for ships.
Each Oloid is individually crafted and has it’s own grain pattern. Oloid comes in a gift box complete with a pamphlet.
Materials: Available in pear or walnut wood. Please note that the wood has natural variation in color or grain. Please see images to get an idea of the range.
Dimensions: 2.75" L x 1.75”W x 1.75”H
