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.

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.
