HAL Wood Armchair
HAL Wood Armchair
Jasper Morrison has added a new model 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. This comfort is enhanced even further in the versions with a seat cushion.
Made in: Germany
Seat shell: dyed-through polypropylene, with armrests. All versions of the HAL Armchair are available with seat cushions (attached to shell with screws).
Seat shell: dyed-through polypropylene, with optional seat cushion (screwed to the seat shell).
Base: non-stackable wooden base in light oak or dark oak. Connecting element between shell and base in die-cast aluminium, powder-coated in dim grey.
Origin of wood: oak (Quercus robur) from Western Europe and/or Poland.
Jasper Morrison, 2014
Jasper Morrison lives and works in London and Tokyo. His designs are expressions of the ‘super normal’ design philosophy: rather than seeking unusual or extravagant results, he often breathes new life into proven solutions by means of reinterpretation, further development and refinement. He has worked together with Vitra on a regular basis since 1989.
Vitra is much more than a brand but rather a staple of design. Established in 1950 in Birsfelden, Switzerland, the brand has left its mark on design history through its transcending path. Starting as a furniture producer, it paved its way to manufacturing and ultimately became the powerhouse design institution we see today.
