The design crowd prides itself on being able to turn just about anything into an art object, so it was only a matter of time before they got around to toys.
These tops come from Herman Miller’s workshop, supposedly inspired by Charles Eames preoccupation with childhood playthings. Of course, because it’s a serious design house, the tops are all lathed and lacquered like the leg of a dinner table.
Watch your back, Hasbro.
