Hal Studio Task Chair

Design Jasper Morrison, 2014
Die-cast aluminum, steel, polypropylene
Made in Germany by Vitra

Jasper Morrison has added a new option to the HAL chair family: the HAL Armchair. Based on the HAL seat shell, he developed an organic one-piece shell that takes on a distinctive look of its own with the curved armrests 'growing' out from the sides - while still bearing a clear family resemblance to the rest of the line. The shell construction responds to the physical forces operating on the seat and provides maximum stability and superb comfort with a minimum amount of material.

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.

Hal studio side chair features a five-star, die-cast aluminum base powder-coated in basic dark and includes swivel mechanism, shock-absorbing seat suspension and height adjustment. The Hal family is offered in a choice of four base options: tubular steel or wood as well as a five-star base on castors.

Hal studio side chair: 18.5" w | 19.25" d | 29.25" - 33.75" h | base: 29" dia. | seat: 14.75" - 19.25" h | 17.25" 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.
