Jasper Morrison, 2020
The base of Moca is constructed with two arcs of steel tubing – one forming the front legs and backrest support, the other constituting the back legs. Two veneered plywood shells are mounted on the base elements to create a comfortable, anatomically shaped seat and backrest. The clever design of the stacking protector attached between the seat and backrest provides optimal protection for the veneer surface.
Moca meets all of the standard norms and is therefore suited for use not only in private settings, but also in restaurants and other public spaces.
- Seat and backrest: moulded plywood veneer in natural oak (Germany) or dark-stained oak (USA), protective natural lacquer finish.
- Base: stackable metal base (up to 6 chairs), chrome-plated or powder-coated finish.
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.
