HAL Cantilever belongs to the large family of HAL chairs developed by Jasper Morrison in collaboration with Vitra. The characteristic flexing action of the elegant cantilever base augments the comfort of this chair – which can be even further enhanced with the addition of a fabric seat cover that is available for all models in the HAL family.

'Special is generally less useful than normal': this statement sums up Jasper Morrison's guiding principle for creating designs that are 'super normal' rather than extraordinary, showing deference to the dictates of daily life – just like HAL.

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.
