Plate table

By Vitra


  • Description

    Quite in keeping with Jasper Morrison's philosophy of "super normal" design, the Plate Coffee Tables have a classic shape and finely balanced proportions. The design thrills with its accomplished interplay of soft roundings and precisely positioned edges. The refined base frame and the thin table top complement perfectly and yet are clearly distinct from each other.

    W:40/70/120 x D:40/70 x H:37cm

    Die-cast aluminium and powder-coated tubular steel base frame; table tops: brushed and waxed Carrara marble, white or aubergine lacquered MDF.

    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.
