cork family

by Jasper Morrison, from Vitra.

cork family

Design Jasper Morrison, 2004
Turned natural cork
Made in Germany by Vitra

Three small friends, robustly built, stable, individual in character and lovable in appearance, that's the Cork Family. Whether as side tables or as stools, the three different brothers benefit from the advantageous properties of the natural material cork - it is comparatively light, enormously tough and has a pleasant soft feel. Available in three models.

Jasper 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.

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.
