Model A is one of the three “siblings” in Jasper Morrison’s family of stools that are distinct individuals, but share some design DNA through their playful personalities and warmly organic materials. Inspired by the forms of wine corks and spools, they make themselves at home as small side tables or low stools. The appealing properties of solid, turned cork come through in each one: durability, lightweight construction, and a surface that’s soft to the touch. The three designs are sold separately. Made in Germany by Vitra, a manufacturer of iconic modern furnishings that’s widely represented in MoMA’s collection.
London-born Jasper Morrison is a designer with international credentials. He studied at Kingston Polytechnic, London’s Royal College of Art, and HDK in Berlin and has design offices in both London and Paris. In 1995, his firm landed the design contract for the new Hannover Tram, a massive light rail project. Their work on the Tram earned an IF Transportation Design Prize and the Ecology award. Morrison also garnered the distinction of Royal Designer for Industry and has worked with a wide range of clients including FLOS, Vitra, and Muji. Morrison’s work is included in MoMA’s collection and in three of the Museum’s exhibitions, including Mutant Materials in Contemporary Design (1995).
