This RTW (reinventing the wheel) is designed by Ron Arad for Dutch company Hidden in 2000. The wheel is a smaller version of the one that he made in his own atelier. Although intended for mass-production, in fact it was only produced eventually in a small quantity, because of the bancruptcy of the company. Only 25 pieces were actually made. This collectors item is an all-aluminium version, in which the shelves remain horizontal when the wheel is turned, was derived from the original limited edition. The wheel is in good original condition with user marks on the outer rim from rolling it, there are some little bumps and marks. On one side there is a scratch (last picture). Beautiful design by Ron Arad, Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam has this piece in their permanent collection.
