jasper morrison ltd. shop in london

each month there are a group of products which are showcased images courtesy of morrison studio

the tiny store opened by british designer jasper morrison, is actually housed in an unused area of morrison’s studio. the design of the shop is simple, wooden shelves are stocked with morrison’s own designs and those of his peers such as designers sori yanagi and naoto fukasawa.

"the shop was opened because we had some extra space in our new office, and after the super normal exhibition (at axis gallery tokyo) I wanted a continuation of the contact that it provided me, with everyday, useful things. my feeling is that design which follows the current ‘entertainment’ model which attaches more importance to media exposure than to the real-life performance of an object has run its course, and that it’s time for designers to shape up and design things which have built-in long-term performance. the shop is an idealistic showroom for those things, rather than a commercial venture, though you may leave with less money than you arrived!" – JM

the jasper morrison ltd. shop is located at 24b kingsland road, london and is open monday to friday (11am – 5pm).
