Square Wave is the first creation born out of a collaboration between Atellani and sculptor Ivan Black. Our idea was to spread some fun to our Kickstarter audience with an affordable yet fascinating, unique piece of kinetic art sculpture. Our Square Wave project was funded on Kickstarter in 2019, enabling us to become a unique producer of kinetic toys that are entirely made in Italy.

Designed in the UK and handmade in Italy, Square Wave is available in many dazzling colors to choose from. The kinetic spinner creates unique mesmerizing reflections and diverse optical illusions. While it spins, Square Wave generates a series of mind-bending optical illusions and unexpected hypnotizing patterns that leaves everyone mesmerized. Square Wave is 100% handcrafted in Italy by artisans with decades of experience in metal work and gilding. Each spinner is meticulously designed to create a smooth and fluid motion. All our sculptures are tested manually and is made of locally sourced, high-quality materials. In addition, Square Wave is treated to protect the elements and suitable for both indoor and outdoor use.
