Jasper Morrison, 2010/2014
- Seat shell: dyed-through recycled polypropylene, with optional seat cushion (screwed to the seat shell).
- Base: four-legged base in tubular steel, non-stackable, chrome-plated or powder-coated in ivory or basic dark. The powder-coated version is suitable for outdoor use.
HAL is Jasper Morrison's interpretation of a shell chair in the tradition of the Plastic Chair by Charles and Ray Eames, whose variety of different bases enables versatile use – from dining tables to meeting rooms, from bars to auditoriums. HAL RE is a further development of this design with a seat shell made of recycled plastic. The recycling material for HAL RE stems from Germany's 'Yellow Bag' (Gelber Sack) collection of household waste, which primarily consists of used packaging. Utilising this recycled material instead of conventional plastic generates 54% less climate-damaging emissions, with a significant reduction in energy consumption. Due to the composition of the recycled material, the different colours are interspersed with tiny specks of pigment. The colour white cannot be implemented in the new material at the moment and will follow as soon as technically feasible. The HAL RE seat shell can also be 100% recycled at the end of the product's life. The many different chair bases can be combined either with a seat shell in plastic (HAL and HAL RE) or plywood (HAL Ply), or with a lightly padded shell covered in fabric (HAL Soft). In the versions with a plastic shell and powder-coated base, HAL is also suitable for use in outdoor settings. The related HAL Armchair rounds out the HAL family.
