The O-Cap armchair emerged from the intuition to cut and shape a simple sheet of leather around a chair: this was the inspiration that sparked Jasper Morrison.
A technological evolution of the 2013 Cap-Chair, the O-Cap armchair reconfirms the extraordinary complexity of the manufacturing process: it is a masterpiece of artisanal craftsmanship, based upon the excellence of Italian leather making.
For this edition, O-Cap offers a shell in raw cut full-grain and/or pigmented leather (natural, black or dark brown): a detail that offers support and softness to this new armchair’s internal structure, which is made of metal and reduced to the minimum to offer both optimal stability and maximum lightness.
The aluminium base, also reduced to the essential, is available with four spokes with caps or five spokes with or without wheels. Envisioned for the office and lounge areas, with its prized craftsmanship and elegant form, the O-Cap armchair is also readily suitable for residential use.
Like the small Cap Chair and Cap Chair 2 armchairs, the seat of the O-Cap armchair can be upholstered in a selection of fabrics from the collection.
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.
