2010 Designer Furniture World Cup: England 3 – Israel 1

Despite the rumours flying around ahead of this match, England stuck with Jasper Morrison rather than pitting Tom Dixon against Ron Arad.

Whereas many would have relished the opportunity to have witnessed the two masters of “real” industrial design going head to head the Morrison/Arad encounter was every bit as entertaining.

Unmoved by Ron Arad’s Bookworm, Jasper Morrison concentrated on his chair work and took the lead with his Basel chair for Vitra; a simple move that produced the deserved result.

Ron Arad responded with a Vitra Tom Vac, but it was too little to late and a quick Trattoria chair for Magis and a Monopod chair for Vitra sealed another runaway success for Jasper Morrison.
