Designer Jasper Morrison

Designer Jasper Morrison strives always to "design more real, lasting, and pleasing things and avoid the designer’s trap of placing too much importance on how things look".

Jasper Morrison designs products that celebrate the 'Supernormal', taking well-known design archetypes and applying innovative means of manufacture to create new forms.

One of the best-known designers working in the UK today, Morrison graduated from The Royal College of Art in 1985 and founded his own design studio in London in 1986. In 2005, Morrison collaborated with Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa on a ground-breaking exhibit, Super Normal, which celebrated the more humble side of design.

The Tokyo-based exhibition focused on design that doesn't call attention to itself, but quietly exists as a normal part of life, such as a paperclip or pen, and his eponymously named Jasper Morrison Shop in Shoreditch carries hundreds of such well-designed household items from around the world.

Jasper Morrison has created products for numerous companies such as Vitra, Cappellini, Magis, Flos, Mattiazzi and Maruni, amongst many other collaborations.

Recent work includes projects with sustainability led US brand Emeco on a series of furniture designs crafted from recycled materials including the 1 Inch Reclaimed Chair. Other notable designs include his Glo-Ball light series for Flos and the T chair for Maruni.
