N. Teufel designs are mini feats of engineering, designed to rotate on concealed stainless steel shafts and minute ball bearings. The father and son team of Norman and Cameron are also inspired by Tibetan prayer wheels and other “living” devotional objects, which encourage presence in the moment, purifying negative thoughts and bringing serenity.
