Originally known as the Optischer Farbmischer, this spinning top is a magical demonstration of color theory. Designed by artist Ludwig Hirschfeld-Mack in 1924, the deluxe set from Naef includes 7 interchangeable discs inspired by legendary Bauhaus figures such as Goethe, Schopenhauer, and Hölzel.

Spin the 4" wooden top and watch as the vibrant colors on each disc blend together in different and surprising ways. A brief exploration of various aspects of color theory is included with each set as well. A beautiful and timeless blend of art and science.

Shipping & Returns

Our products ship through a privately owned climate-controlled warehouse in San Diego, California.

We offer a variety of shipping methods from budget-friendly to price-doesn’t-matter. You can compare estimated costs and transit times once you begin the checkout process and enter your shipping address. Carrier options may vary based on your destination.

We strive to pack and ship all items within 24 hours of each order (Monday through Friday).

Every box shipped from Art of Play is expertly packed by actual human beings (you can see their names written on your package slip). Everyone in our warehouse is paid a fair wage and treated with respect.
