The HAL Barstool by Jasper Morrison pairs the unassuming seat shell of the large family of chairs with a height-adjustable swivel pedestal with comfortable footrest, on an elegant circular base plate.
The HAL Barstool's gas spring mechanism sinks comfortably under the user for an optimum seating experience.
Dyed-through polypropylene, swivel mechanism, with optional seat cushion (screwed to the seat shell).
Height-adjustable tubular steel pedestal, gas spring powder-coated in basic dark, column sleeve and footrest in chrome-plated tubular steel withanti-skid surface. Seat shell and base connection in die-cast aluminium, powder-coated in dim grey. Steel base plate covered with sheet metal.
Known for thinking outside the box, Jasper Morrison is one of the most successful industrial designers of the past few decades. Together with his colleague Naoto Fukasawa, he defined the term 'super normal', which in his opinion answers the question of what 'good design' should really be. In his work, he strives to create good examples of understated, useful and responsible design. Morrison has developed several projects in collaboration with Vitra, including the Basel Chair, the Place Sofa and the HAL chair family. His designs are represented in New York's Museum of Modern Art and other prominent museum collections around the world.
Swiss manufacturer Vitra’s collections of furniture and lighting bring together the colour, culture and sophistication of the world’s most prominent designers.
