The HAL Tube by Jasper Morrison for Vitra is part of the extensive HAL chair collection. In creating the Vitra chair family Designer Morrison made it his goal to design all-purpose chairs which stand out not on account of their extravagance, but their normality and simplicity and so highlight their practicality. The Vitra HAL Tube chair sits atop a four-legged base available in either chrome plated or powder coated tubular steel; the comfortable seat is made of coloured polypropylene and is available in a range of colours, thus allowing for an effortless integration into any room and for any occasion - and as with all members of the HAL family the Vitra HAL Tube allows for a high level of comfort and invites you to linger. The Vitra HAL Tube is available as stackable and non-stackable version, the stackable version is only available with a chrome base.
