A new Jasper Morrison design is introduced at Salone del Mobile 2014 as part of a natural evolution of the "Cap Chair" which was introduced at Salone 2013.
"Cap Chair 2” is a leather chair with sides/armrests fully covered and upholstered in leather. A truly tailored product and crafted in an understated design. This new version can be lower than the predecessor and can be composed around directional tables lower than the standard height, so it turns the classic meeting room into a meeting lounge. "Cap Chair 2" has self-locking wheels and can be upholstered in fabric or leather (full grain or pigmented) in natural, dark brown and black. The simplicity of lines and materials make it elegant and classic but contemporary at the same time.
Born in London in 1959, Japer Morrison graduated from the Royal College of Art and established his first design office in 1986. Immediately following, he began his lasting and valuable collaboration with Cappellini. Nowadays he works in London and Paris for high-level companies such as Alessi, Flos, Rowenta, Sony and Samsung. Each Morrison project has a simple elegance which makes it strongly modern as an archetype linked to past, favoring function on expression.
