Square wave is made up of 24 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 handmade one by one, 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.
Square Wave was originally created as an artistic sculpture long before it was considered to be a relaxing, mind focusing dynamic kinetic spinner. When not in use, it adds and element of elegance to any style interior whether it be modern, classic or vintage. Square Wave is the perfect accent for every room in your home or office. Its beauty is timeless and it never seems out of place. You can hang it from the ceiling as kinetic sculpture or play with it whenever you feel like it. Square Wave is a truly rare and unique example of originality combined with stunning design.
Relaxing & easy to use
Square Wave is a beautifully designed work of art, intended to be admired and add natural, simple beauty and elegance to your home or garden. It's inherently intuitive to use! Square Wave is also perfect when it comes to helping us relax, meditate and reflect on life, it is the ultimate stress remover precisely because of its mesmerizing waves and soft turning motions, like a bird in flight, or a tree blowing in the wind.
What is Square Wave?
Square Wave is the result of extensive prototyping and iterations. Tiny handmade tweaks and adjustments were made in order to find the smoothest balance between the weight and length of each metal rod. The second step was converting this artisanal method into a replicable process. In order to do so we relied on world class artisans, with decades of experience. Square Wave is assembled by hand, making each one unique.

Ivan Black (b. 1972) London, is an award winning British sculptor. He began making sculptures at an early age, motion quickly becoming central to his work, adding another dimension of complexity and interest to his experiments.Ivan Black's work uses a series of unique mechanisms to create moving sculptures. Energy is channeled into Black’s works through anything from the interaction of the viewer to the natural power of blowing wind and the targeted use of principles of gravity. When the intended form of energy interacts with the sculpture, it plays out a chain reaction creating shifting patterns of motion from random to highly organised movements.
