The Loopita is made from a single piece of red oak with high-density foam for comfortable lounging. The brainchild of 21-year-old Mexican designer Victor Aleman, the Loopita has modular possibilities for endless loops of lounging.
When I look at this seat, which is clearly inspired by the Mexican toy El Trompo (top), it reminds me of the Dead or Alive songYou Spin Me Right Round (Like A Record). Quite like the vinyl, the TOtoyO spins a complete 360º

Short form, according o Thomas Mill ‘s parlance includes the internet and magazines and text messages.
