April 15, 2005 Home entertainment furniture company Reversica has come up with a new “twist” on creating flexible living spaces with the introduction of the Gyre 6300 flat screen concealment hardware system. The design uses an unusual ‘rotaxial’ motion to flip a 50” flat screen TV 180° and reveal a bookcase on the other side – all in a slim 18” case.

April 15, 2005 Home entertainment furniture company Reversica has come up with a new “twist” on creating flexible living spaces with the introduction of the Gyre 6300 flat screen concealment hardware system. The design uses an unusual ‘rotaxial’ motion to flip a 50” flat screen TV 180° and reveal a bookcase on the other side – all in a slim 18” case.

“It’s like adding another room to your house,” said Cynthia Miyashita, president of Berkeley Mills, with a smile when she saw the utility of the Gyre turning a home entertainment room into a private library.

With a motion described as ‘rotaxial’ by Reversica’s CEO and the product’s inventor, Bill Stone, the motion hardware allows a 50” plasma or LCD screen television to twist completely around revealing a bookcase with 12 linear feet of space. One minute you’re watching TV and – spin the Gyre around – the next minute your home theater is now a library and you’re ready for book club night. The space could also be used for DVDs or as a display for collectibles.

Use Space Better

The Gyre doesn’t pivot like a Lazy Susan but swings out, tracing a teardrop pattern and returning to its original location, only reversed. Because of its unique design, all this takes place in a case good about 18” thick. Many are surprised the case can turn around in something so slim.

“Calling the Gyre’s motion ‘rotaxial’ is the best way to describe its unique spinning and gliding action,” said Stone. “Everyone who has seen it agrees,” Stone said, “you can’t describe the Gyre’s elegant motion with words alone. It’s unexpected and familiar all at once. You have to see it in action.”

Motion by Reversica

The Gyre 6300 will be on display at Century Furniture’s showroom at the International Home Furnishings Market in High Point, NC from April 14-20, 2005.
