Cooper Hewitt Spinning Chairs

Cooper Hewitt Spinning Chairs

If you wander by 5th Avenue and 90st you can’t help but see Cooper-Hewitt’s beautiful lawn. Although we do visit the inside of the museum – the stunning Carnegie Mansion – last week we visited the outside of the museum. In particular we took the time to take a spin in the fabulously designed Spun Chair by Thomas Heatherwick and his team, Heatherwick Studio.

No charge to walk into the garden – entrance on 90th Street – and enjoy a spin or relax the shade.

 

To recover from our dizziness and always game to fully use any patch of grass, we enjoyed a game of running bases – there is always a ball in someone’s pocket!  Thankfully the guard was amenable 4 loud people enjoying the lawn!
