EVO-C

Jasper Morrison, 2020

EVO-C is a successful, uncompromising iteration of the principle and characteristics of the classic cantilever chair in the material of plastic. Thanks to today's gas injection moulding technology, plastic structures can achieve the proven strength and rigidity of cantilevered tubular steel constructions. The load-bearing structure is formed by hollow tube-like components that flow seamlessly into the planar surfaces of the seat and back.

Morrison's aim was to eliminate all superfluous details: the shape of EVO-C, which is made entirely from 100% recyclable polypropylene, is determined by the indispensable factors for achieving stability and comfort. It combines the springy properties of tubular steel with the comfort of an ergonomic seat shell.
The use of a single material gives EVO-C a cohesive appearance. Its silhouette is so graceful that the chair almost disappears behind the sitter. And when not in use, the chair resembles a two-legged sculpture growing out of the ground, which serves as a discreetly elegant substitute for the absent owner.

EVO-C is available in a selection of colours.
