HAL Armchair Wood by Jasper Morrison has a distinctive design, which combines a curved plastic shell with the contrasting linearity of a robust four-legged wooden base. The comfortable seat shell with integrated armrests is available in a range of colours, while the chair legs come in a choice of three high-quality woods.

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.
