Easy to stack – to a maximum of 6 pieces – the Tate chair designed by Jasper Morrison is part of a range that includes chairs and stools, with a shell that can have a high or low backrest.
This series has a frame made of matte satined stainless steel, or varnished in white, mud or anthracite; the shell is made of beech plywood that is matte lacquered in the colours of the collection; for the cushioned version, the padding is polyurethane foam with a fixed cover in the fabrics and colours of 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.
