In the modern world, kinetic art is everywhere

With the advancement of tech, classic paintings are still on top, but they are no longer the one and only kind of art. The desire of modern artists to experiment with form, movement, sound, and optical effects has brought kinetic art into the mainstream. Sculptures that move with the wind, the dance of light and shadows, and installations you can touch and even change – that's the vibe of today's art. Create your own engineering art object and dive into the aesthetics of motion with our Hypnotic Vortex!

Get the Vortex moving and enjoy the special touch it adds to your interior

To make it work, you need to assemble 340 wooden pieces and a special mechanism that moves the Vortex, producing stunning visual effects and optical illusions. So, the kit also includes 17 weight balls, 4 bearings, 2 magnets, and 3 special springs. The very first task is to assemble the kinetic mechanism, the «heart» of the model. Then, you put the spinners and the central pattern onto the mechanism and get an amazing wall sculpture with a 500 mm diameter. With two captivating spinners moving in different directions, this 3D model is extremely interactive and hypnotic.
