Wooden Tops – Set of 5
Dynamic – the pulse of time
How fascinating rotating spinning tops are, especially when they are made of 5 different fine woods. Aesthetically aligned on a small black base, the participants await the starting signal. Which top rotates the longest, the one made of maple, pear- or cherry-wood, or maybe walnut? The game of stability and instability, and rotational powers can begin.

Jürg Näf and Christof Beck’s spin is a set of five sleek twirlers that doubles as a brief education in wood grains: When the tops are nested in their customized box, each is identified by its respective wood—cherry, pear, plum, sycamore and walnut.”
