The Modest One
The Crate Series is an evolution of Jasper Morrison's 2006 product, The Crate. The Crate Series consists of five units of varying sizes and scales that share the same elementary properties and multi-functional characteristics as the original Crate design.
An emphasis on the same honest material; solid pine, proportion and usability are at the base of this important series. Most pieces from the series have two immediate functions: the potential to act as storage and also either as a table or sideboard. One
piece is designed with proportions specifically enabling it to act as a second bed. The key feature of the series, aesthetically and functionally, is a contrasting fabric hinge that allows the top of each unit to open for easy access. The elementary prop
erties of a found wine crate continue to inspire Jasper Morrison in the evolution of the Crate series. They are apparent in these further additions to the Crate Series. The multifunctional characteristics of Series No.1-5 are complemented by the defined t
ypology of Crate Series No.6 and No.7; a bookshelf and wardrobe. All are constructed from the familiar solid pine that characterizes the series whilst the detail of a fabric hinge is employed on the wardrobe doors.
