Based on the HAL seat shell, Jasper Morrison developed an organic one-piece shell that takes on a distinctive look of its own with the curved armrests 'growing' out from the sides – while still bearing a clear family resemblance to the rest of the line - the new addition to the Hal family is here: the HAL Armchair.
The shell construction responds to the physical forces operating on the seat and provides maximum stability and superb comfort with a minimum amount of material. This comfort is enhanced even further in the versions with a seat cushion.For the base, there is a choice of four-legged bases in tubular steel or wood as well as a five-star base on castors.
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.
