New in dimensions and distinct in its clean-cut design language, the Kile sofa series is designed to seamlessly blend into the home or public space.
The sofa is built on a solid wood frame and features cold cured foam with fabric upholstering.
With Kile, Jasper Morrison has created a new series of sofas that can be used in the home as well as in the public space. Kile is built on a solid wood frame and upholstered in cold cured foam. The comfortable upholstery is also hard-wearing and very resistant to daily use and wear. In addition to conveying elegance, Tthe one-piece straight back and angled armrest which, in addition to conveying elegance, ensures extra comfort for the user. Jasper Morrison has allowed the ends of the sofa to open out slightly to make it more welcoming. In line with Jasper Morrison’s design philospophy, Kile is able to blend seamlessly into daily life as either a centrepiece or inconspicuously. The sofa is new in dimensions and distinct in its clean-cut design language. At the same time, it features the same square legs which can be found on Børge Mogensen’s iconic leather sofas and wing chair.
Jasper Morrison is a British multidisciplinary designer, well known for creating the ‘Supernormal’ concept together with Japanese designer Naoto Fukosawa. A highly productive designer, Morrison splits his time between studios in London, Tokyo and Paris.
In a world where many designers use new technologies to add superfluous details to their designs, Morrison does the opposite, using machinery to refine his designs into creations that do not distract, but which harmonise with the user’s environment and create a good atmosphere.
Although his style is instantly recognisable, all his designs are extremely unique. Jasper Morrison designs for some of the largest design houses in the world. In addition to his industrial design, Morrison has published many noteworthy books on design.
Morrison’s work has been exhibited in leading design museums and galleries around the world. In 2016, Jasper Morrison was named ‘Designer of the Year’ by the German A&W architektur & wohnen for his “important role in shaping the contemporary world of design”.
Jasper Morrison holds a BA in Design from Kingston Polytechnic Design School (1982) and an MA in Design from the Royal College of Art, London (1985). He also studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, formerly Hochschule für Bildende Künste. In March 2007, he was awarded an honorary doctorate in design from Kingston University London.
Fredericia is Jasper Morrison’s first collaboration with a Danish company.
Since its foundation in 1911, the family-owned company Fredericia has built up a strong tradition of beautiful craftsmanship and innovative design, developed in close collaboration with a carefully chosen circle of internationally recognised designers.
