With HAL, Jasper Morrison has created a reinterpretation of the multi-functional shell chair and a varied chair range with a distinctly contemporary appearance. The shape of HAL‘s shell ensures plenty of freedom of movement and the slightly flexible plastic makes many different sitting positions possible – even sideways and astride the chair.
Because of this, HAL facilitates dynamic, ergonomic seating. HAL can be used in all kinds of environments – in the office, as well as in public spaces and in the home. The Hal collection enjoys extremely green credentials. Being accredited with the 'Greenguard' environmental label Hal has LEED (Leadership in Energy & Environmental Design) accreditation. What's more, its materials can also be broken down for recycling.
Material: Recycled Polyproplene shell dyed throughout, Cantilever base of Chromed tubular Steel
Known for thinking outside the box, Jasper Morrison is one of the most successful industrial designers of the past few decades. Together with his colleague Naoto Fukasawa, he defined the term 'super normal', which in his opinion answers the question of what 'good design' should really be.
In his work, he strives to create good examples of understated, useful and responsible design. His designs are represented in New York's Museum of Modern Art and other prominent museum collections around the world.
One of our favourites, the Glo Ball collection is a piece of classic 90s design that feels current today and his collections for Vitra include the Vitra HAL Ply Chair.
