Basel Chair 2008
Jasper Morrison, 2008
DesignReasons sells the Basil Chair designed by Jasper Morrison for Vitra. The Basil Chair is best for a restaurant or dining chair for both residential and commercial.
In the Basel Chair, Jasper Morrison renews the classic genre of simple wooden chairs that have been mass produced in great varieties and number for about a century. The balanced proportions first catch the eye, then on closer inspection the chair reveals a crucial innovation.
The Basel Chair’s seat and back are made of plastic and are moulded in a more pronounced organic shape than pure wooden chairs; the surface is textured and slim – and thus more flexible. The combination of materials means the Basel Chair proves to be very comfortable and the various colours visually quite striking.
