Basel Chair Chocolate & Black Beech



Designed in 2008 by Jasper Morrison for Vitra, the traditional form of the wooden chair is examined to create the Basel Chair. With a chocolate plastic seat and backrest contrasted with a black-lacquered beech frame, the harmony of materials makes the Basel Chair a modern seating solution.

Elevated on distinctively black-stained beech wood legs, the chocolate-hued seat and backrest are crafted from dyed-through ASA plastic, offering a slimmer and more flexible seat with an enhanced texture and organic shape.

Award-winning designer Jasper Morrison works closely with prestigious manufacturers Vitra and considers ‘super normal’ a term that defines good design: an aesthetic that is widely reflected in his work. 


  • Renewal of the traditional wooden chair design
  • Combines materials for a flexible and slim seat and backrest
  • Elevated on a black-lacquered beech base with plastic glides to protect carpet
