Jasper Morrison

Jasper Morrison (*1959 in London/UK), studied at the Royal College of Art in London before pursuing further studies at the Hochschule der Künste in Berlin on a fellowship. In 1986 he founded his own design studio in London. Two early projects that gained attention were room installations, "Reuters News Centre" for Documenta 8 in Kassel, and "Some New Items for the Home" at the DAAD Gallery in Berlin. The stringent concepts of these projects, which featured starkly reductive objects, represented a reaction to the formal excesses of postmodernism. Jasper Morrison became a leading figure of "New Simplicity", a movement that advocated a more modest and also more serious approach to design. In addition to furniture, he has also created lamps, home accessories, textiles, a tram system for the city of Hanover, Germany, and a bus shelter for the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein. His joint 2006 exhibition with the Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa, entitled "Super Normal", put forth provocative theses that once again stimulated great discussion. Through designs such as Cork Bowl, his Morrison Bench or his Park Sofa and Armchair family Jasper Morrison has, together with Ronan & Erwan Bouroullec and Hella Jongerius, made an essential contribution to the steadily growing Vitra Home Collection.

...Similarly, Formed by Air considers objects filled with air to create stable, functional forms, albeit through processes a little more involved than "standard" inflation and including projects as diverse as Jasper Morrison's gas injection moulded Air Chair for Magis, Oskar Zieta's FIDU steel inflation process as exemplified through the Plopp stool and Rondo mirror or Marcel Wanders' Sparkling Chair/Still Chair for Magis, a work which also stands as a reminder that the inspiration air provides a designer may not be enough to blow away other considerations: Wanders' original plan was to have a chair crafted, in effect, from PET bottles inflated by high pressure gas...
