The Hi pad chair, and accompanying Hi pad Stool, are the result of a production process that represents the perfect balance between technology and artisan craftsmanship: in these pieces, designed by Jasper Morrison, the skills of master upholsterers are combined with innovative techniques which allow for the leather or fabric cover to adhere perfectly to the three-dimensional edge of the padding.
The structure of these seats is made of beech plywood, with a fixed cover in the fabrics and leathers from the collection. The base is built of stainless steel with a satined or matte varnished finish in white, mud or anthracite.
The chairs and stools in the Hi pad range have a sober and rigorous design that makes them suitable for use both in residential and contract settings. Furthermore, these seats have obtained Greenguard Gold certification: a standard that guarantees maximum control of emissions for products designed with the greatest attention to health and wellness.
Born in London in 1959, he graduated at the Royal College of Art and established his first design office in 1986. Immediately after this, he began his lasting and useful cooperation with Cappellini; nowadays, he works in London and in Paris for high level companies such as Alessi, Flos, Rowenta, Sony and Samsung. Each Morrison’s project has a minimal elegance which makes it strongly modern beeing a sort of archetype linked to past, favouring function on expression.
