Designed in 2008 by Jasper Morrison for Vitra, the traditional form of the wooden chair is examined to create the Basel Chair. With a plastic seat and backrest contrasted with a natural beech frame, the harmony of materials makes the Basel Chair a modern seating solution.
Elevated on distinctively grained beech wood legs, the 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.
