The chair has a sturdy, weighted presence, tapering with an elegant curve to a wedge-shaped backrest.As a compact visitor chair, Monopod is a perfect companion for sofas and larger armchairs. Thanks to its solid execution, it can also be used in public settings such as lounges and reception areas. Its upholstered plastic shell structure allows Monopod to retain its precise shape even after extended use. Covered in fabric or leather, the chair is surprisingly comfortable despite its apparent simplicity.


Jasper Morrison

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.
