Designer Spotlight: Jasper Morrison
January 25, 2021
According to Jasper Morrison, “Discrete objects are more successful in building good atmosphere than eye-catching ones.”
Morrison, one of today’s most recognized names in the industry, is known for his no-frills approach to design. The British multidisciplinary designer prefers to reduce his works into its most essential functions to create something that does not distract, but rather blends seamlessly into the user’s environment.
Over the years, Morrison has collaborated with major international brands, such as Fredericia, Maruni, Emeco and Kettal. His products range from furniture to electronics and appliances. Though his style is instantly recognizable, his designs show unique creativity. Take a look at some of our favorite creations from the man.
