Armin Kolb spinning top

Most of Armin Kolb's work revolved in the truest sense of the words around one small phenomenon: the spinning top.
For him, a spinning top is not just a simple children's toy, it rather has the status of an art object, composed of individual elements and thereby forming a whole.  In regard to the different materials and shapes, these elements be combined in countless ways.

However, his spinning tops don't reflect any trend. They are results of snaphots, which may vary depending on the situation.  In addition to exclusive one of a kind works, he also manufactures spinning tops in small series - also for companies and institutions as promotional gifts.
