UK designer jasper morrison‘s ‘hal’ for vitra has been conceived as a program chair for use in a multitude of situations–from the office, domestic space to public areas.


the chair’s main shell is made from an ergonomically molded plastic which ensures a high degree of comfort and encourages dynamic sitting – flexible according to what positions you wish to sit. depending on one’s intended use and preferences, a wide choice of bases with varying colors and finishes can be combined with the plastic shell allowing for many configurations of functionality and aesthetics including: two stacking variants with a tubular steel base, a version with wooden legs, and there is also a base bending, with our without arms, and two bar stool versions. comfort and color can be changed simply through a fabric that is very simply set back and to the body by means of two cloth strips.

  • I love Jasper and his work is amazing. I just thought this time the range has a bit “too much” of the Eames Plastic Chair series DSR, DAW etc…
