  • Description

    Pon is a series of solid wood side tables in different sizes that are both very stable, versatile and which can be used as either stand-alone furniture or combined in different heights. The smaller Pon tables are modest in size, but large enough for a book, a glass or a tray.

    The Pon series of side tables was designed in 2015 by Jasper Morrison, who describes Pon as an alternative to the “overrated and badly named ‘coffee table’”. Instead of taking up space, the Pon tables’ modest size means they can be used in front of a sofa as well as beside a low chair.

    Pon is made of solid oak. The strong focus on the material is enhanced by the fact that Pon lacks the usual distinction between table top and underframe. Instead, the table top, column and foot form an integrated whole. The Pon tables stand as distinct yet unpresuming sculptures in any room, in addition to which the solid wood will patinate beautifully over time.

    Jasper Morrison

    Jasper Morrison, born 1959 in London, studied at the Royal College of Art in London. He pursued 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 Center 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.
