Rise Table

By Vitra

£529.00

  • Description

    The Rise Table was designed by Jasper Morrison as a practical companion for the home. The circular form of the occasional table's top and base make it an appealing decorative accent in any interior. With its continuously adjustable height, it adapts to a wide variety of needs and situations: in its lowest position, it can be used next to an armchair or sofa as a side table and at the highest setting as a serving table or compact work surface. The attractive aluminium tulip base ensures stability and the table top in the same material is equipped with a practical carrying handle. Thanks to its harmonious proportions, the Rise Table maintains a pleasantly understated appearance – quite in keeping with Morrison's philosophy of 'super normal' design.
    The powder-coated surfaces of the Rise Table are robust and easy to clean and come in a range of different colours.

    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.
