Design Jasper Morrison, 2014
Die-cast aluminum, steel, powder-coated textured finish
Made in Germany by Vitra

The Rise Table was designed by Jasper Morrison as a practical companion for the home. The circular form of the occasional table's top and base make it an appealing decorative accent in any interior. With its continuously adjustable height, it adapts to a wide variety of needs and situations: in its lowest position, it can be used next to an armchair or sofa as a side table and at the highest setting as a serving table or compact work surface. The attractive aluminum tulip base ensures stability and the table top in the same material is equipped with a practical carrying handle. Thanks to its harmonious proportions, the Rise Table maintains a pleasantly understated appearance - quite in keeping with Morrison's philosophy of 'super normal' design.

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.

The textured, powder-coated surfaces of the Rise Table are robust and easy to clean and come in a range of different colors.

18.75" - 26" h | base: 13.5" dia. | top: 19.75" dia.

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.
