BASEL CHAIR / Jasper Morrison
With the Basel Chair Jasper Morrison rejuvinates the classic plain wooden chair which has been produced industrially in large quantities and many varieties for about 100 years. The eye is immediately struck by its harmoniously balanced proportions, and on closer inspection the chair represents clear innovation. The seat and backrest of the Basel Chair are manufactured from a synthetic material and hence can be shaped more organically, have a more textured surface and in general can be produced thinner – and so more flexibly – than chairs made only of wood. Thanks to this combination of materials, the Basel Chair provides clearly improved seating comfort and, in its two-tone variants, is especially pleasing to the eye.
