In keeping with Jasper Morrison's philosophy of 'super normal' design, his Plate Tables are characterised by an unassuming, classic shape and finely balanced proportions
Available in two different sizes, these coffee tables derive their charm from the successful interplay of subtly rounded contours and precisely defined edges. The refined base and the thin table top in premium solid wood, Carrara marble or powder-coated MDF form a harmonious whole, yet are clearly distinct from each other. With their understated elegance, the Plate Tables can be attractively paired with a wide variety of sofas, but they are especially appealing companion pieces for the Soft Modular Sofa, also designed by JasperÂ Morrison.
TABLE TOP Powder-coated MDF or Carrara marble, brushed and waxed, table thickness 15 mm.
BASE Die-cast aluminium and powder-coated tubular steel.
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.
