Design Jasper Morrison, 2018
Die-cast aluminum, marble, glass, solid wood or MDF top
Made in Germany by Vitra

Like all of the designs developed by Jasper Morrison in collaboration with Vitra, the Plate Dining Table reflects the tenets of his 'super normal' design philosophy. Morrison explains: 'The objects that perform best do so not because they look beautiful or valuable but because they have the essential code of being good at what they are.'

Finely balanced proportions and the subtle interplay of planes and curves give the Plate Dining Table an unassuming, refined appearance that can be complemented by a wide variety of chairs, both contemporary and classic. The tapered legs with a quarter-circle profile and the slender frame adhere to the principle of an efficient use of materials: as much as necessary, as little as possible. This lends the table an elegant, graceful silhouette. Details such as the gently splayed legs or the slight overhang of the table top are reminiscent of archetypal tables - reinterpreted in a modern idiom. The deft combination of aesthetic elements and structural details make the Plate Dining Table appear immediately familiar and perfectly at home in any interior.

The Plate Dining Table is available in several sizes and colors, with table tops in solid wood, glass, marble or MDF. This selection makes it possible to find the ideal version for many different settings.

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.
Vitra is a Swiss company dedicated to improving the quality of homes, offices and public spaces through the power of design. Following in the tradition of Charles & Ray Eames, who have influenced Vitra's approach to sustainability in many ways, product longevity is central to the company's contribution to sustainable development; short-lived styling is avoided at all costs. This can be seen most clearly in the classical pieces of furniture that have been used for decades, had several owners and have then even ended up as a part of a collection.
