Design Jasper Morrison, 2010
Polypropylene, aluminum, wood
Made in Germany by Vitra

With HAL, Jasper Morrison has created a reinterpretation of the multifunctional shell chair and a varied chair range with a distinctly contemporary appearance. The shape of HAL's shell ensures plenty of freedom of movement and the slightly flexible plastic makes many different sitting positions possible - even sideways and astride the chair. Because of this, HAL facilitates dynamic, ergonomic seating. The selection of bases, shell colors and fabric covers opens up a wide range of choices. HAL can be used in all kinds of environments - in the office, as well as in public spaces and in the home. Combining the chair with the matching HAL Table, which was developed at the same time, is also an option.

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'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.

Seat cushions are screwed to the seat and offered in Hopsak fabric (100% polyamide). The non-stackable wooden base is available in natural oak, dark oak or black-pigmented walnut. Seat shell and base connections are die-cast aluminum, powder-coated in white (RAL9010) or basic dark (RAL9004).

Quick-ship option:
- white shell - natural oak base - hard glides

Hal wood: 31.25" h | 18.75" w | 20" d | seat: 17" h | 17.5" d

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.

wonderful chair
Mimi, more than a month ago.
We love the Hal Side Chair. It's extremely comfortable and beautiful. We combine it with the Eames Side Chair and the Hay Copenhagen Chair. Hal's the most comfortable one!
