Basel Chair

Jasper Morrison, 2008

The Basel Chair by Jasper Morrison renews the classic genre of wooden bistro chairs: its seat and back are made of plastic for enhanced comfort compared to all-wood chairs. Available in various colour combinations, the chairs make a striking aesthetic accent, especially in the two-tone versions. With its robust materials and unobtrusive form, the Basel Chair is ideally suited for use in restaurants, bars and cafés.

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.
