“Special is generally less useful than normal” said Jasper Morrison. The designer created the HAL chair and the new coordinated table as not-extraordinary objects “but rather a super-normal furnitures“. The white limited edition adds a sober and minimal look and a weather-proof design for everyday use.
With HAL, Jasper Morrison reinterpreted the multifunctional shell chair and created a versatile family of seatings with a clean contemporary look. He also created the HAL Table as a companion piece.
Tom Vac chair by Ron Arad is a stackable seating now available in an all-white limited edition with an ivory-coloured base. Special additives in the moulded polypropylene shell help to prevent discoloration. The powder-coated finish of the base makes the chair suited for use on the terrace or in the garden.
Ronan e Erwan Bouroullec explored organic features and collaborated with Vitra for over four years to design Vegetal. Its flat, branch-like ribs are asymmetrically intertwined on three levels to form the seat shell, which is shaped as an irregular circle and supported by four legs that appear to sprout from the ground.
The Metal Side Tables also by the Bouroullec brothers belong to the category of furnishings that do not stand at the centre of attention, yet are indispensable for the completion of an interior. For the White Collection, the designs are being produced in a wheather-proof limited edition with a powder-coated finish in the colour of ivory.
