Wobble wobble! 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‚Äôs inversions, he derived the harmonious curvilinear form of the Oloid from the unusual spatial geometry. Hand-carved marble, produced in a small series, delivered in a cardboard box with leaflet. Roll the Oloid down a smooth, slightly inclined surface and you will witness its meandering, three-dimensional movement. Fun fact: 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.
By buying this product, you'll support the marble crafts people on the island of Romblon and the cultural projects of ‚ÄúKoberwitz 1924 Inc.‚Äù of the Philippines, mainly in the fields of agriculture, health and education. Each Oloid is individually crafted and has it‚Äôs own shades and patterns. Oloid comes in a gift box complete with a pamphlet.
