Design Jasper Morrison, 2007
Stainless steel
Made by Alessi

Morrison's "Knifeforkspoon" series is certainly one of the strongest elements in the Autumn/Winter 2004 range. When considering this cutlery one finds themselves reiterating the extraordinary consistency of minimalist approach that characterizes all Jasper's work. Here, the design is based on the attempt to reduce the "item of cutlery" to its ultimate essence, to its purest, most common form, defined but tentatively and deliberately stripped of all stylistic overlay. It is therefore, perhaps, a classic example of Morrison's work.

Born in London, Jasper Morrison studied design at the Royal College of Art and at the HdK in Berlin. Editor of the Design Year Book in 1999 with a passion for the history of design, Morrison designs for Cappellini, Vitra, Magis, Flos, Rosenthal and Sony.

Knifeforkspoon set consists of one table spoon, one table fork, one table knife & one coffee spoon. The knife is offered in monobloc and the set is offered in your choice of mirror polished stainless steel or steel matte.

Jasper Morrison

Jasper Morrison (b. 1959) is an English product and furniture designer from London. He received a Bachelor of Design degree from Kingston Polytechnic Design School in 1982 and a Masters degree in Design from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1985. He also studied at the Berlin University of the Arts, formerly the Hochschule der Künste (HdK). While a student, he gained a keen interest in modernist pioneers, such as Buckminster Fuller, Gerald Summers, Jean Prouvé and Le Corbusier. Morrison's objects provide a quiet contrast to the creative exuberance of the Eighties. The visual restraint, high functionalism and constructive simplicity attract attention to his work.
Alessi was founded in 1921 by Giovanni Alessi to produce crafted metal products for eating and drinking. In 1935, Carlo Alessi, son of Giovanni, was named chief designer. In 1945, he ascended to chief executive and designed the coffee service Bombé, an industrial piece manufactured in four sizes. That same year Carlo's younger brother, Ettore Alessi, joined the company as a technician. By the 1980s, Alberto Alessi took over the management of Alessi and launched the Alessi company into the design decade through collaborations with designers such as Philippe Starck and his playful three-legged Juicy Salif citrus squeezer.
