Designed by Jasper Morrison.
In the Basel Chair, Morrison renews the classic genre of simple wooden chairs that have been mass produced in great varieties and number for about a century. The balanced proportions first catch the eye, then on closer inspection the chair reveals a crucial innovation. The Basel Chairs seat and back are made of plastic and are moulded in a more pronounced organic shape than pure wooden chairs; the surface is textured and slim and thus more flexible.
The combination of materials means the Basel Chair proves to be very comfortable and the various colours visually quite striking.
Available in natural or black beech with a choice of six colours for the seat and back.
Height 800 mm Width 425 mm Depth 470 mm
Seat height: 460mm

British designer Jasper Morrison set up his Office for Design in 1986, and saw some of his earliest designs produced by brands including Aram, SCP and Cappellini, later going on to collaborate with Alessi, Flos and Magis. However his work isn’t confined to the domestic sphere, spanning several categories including transport and exhibition design, as well as town planning.
Morrison has held solo exhibitions around the world, and continues to partner with the likes of Muji, Camper and Established & Sons through his studio, which has offices in London, Tokyo and Paris.
