The bar stool's stable four-legged base guarantees HAL Ply Stool High excellent stability.
This high stool version is part of the HAL family of chairs designed by Jasper Morrison. Other variations are also available with a plastic seat shell and medium-height base.
Special is generally less useful than normal: this statement sums up Jasper Morrisons guiding principle for creating designs that are not extraordinary but rather super normal and – just like HAL – that show deference to the dictates of daily life. With HAL, he has reinterpreted the multifunctional shell chair and created a versatile family of chairs with a clean contemporary look. The shape of the seat shell provides great freedom of movement in a variety of sitting positions – even sideways or astride the chair.
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.
