In keeping with Jasper Morrison's philosophy of 'super normal' design, his Plate Tables are characterised by an unassuming, classic shape and finely balanced proportions. Available in different sizes, the tables derive their charm from the successful interplay of subtle curves and precisely defined edges. The refined base and the thin table top in premium solid wood, marble or powder-coated MDF form a harmonious whole, yet are clearly distinct from each other. The dimensions of the Plate Tables are coordinated so that several tables can be grouped together to form a large surface area or to create diverse arrangements. This flexibility offers ideal solutions in regard to both size and shape for the requirements of different interiors or for unusual sofa configurations.
Jasper Morrison lives and works in London and Tokyo. His designs are expressions of the ‘super normal’ design philosophy: rather than seeking unusual or extravagant results, he often breathes new life into proven solutions by means of reinterpretation, further development and refinement. He has worked together with Vitra on a regular basis since 1989.
