The furniture whisperer
In the exhibition “Typecasting. An Assembly of Iconic, Forgotten and New Vitra Characters,” Robert Stadler lends furniture a voice. Let’s take a listen!
Jasper Morrison’s new Occasional Lounge Chair is a charming, compact armchair: its outward shape has the appearance of a cubic volume with clean lines, straight edges and a polygonal body that tapers downward. The design is subtle enough to utilise several chairs together – in free arrangements or geometric configurations – yet with its distinctive look, the Occasional Lounge Chair also adds a striking accent to any interior as a solo piece.
The inner shape of the lounge chair, by contrast, is characterised by softly rounded, organic contours. The seat cushion and backrest provide an inviting cosiness and level of comfort that one would not expect from the Occasional Lounge Chair at first glance. The combination of a minimalist aesthetic with maximum functionality typifies Jasper Morrison’s philosophy of ‘super normal’ design.
As a modern, unobtrusive armchair, the Occasional Lounge Chair is suited for hotels, lobbies and waiting areas as well as home environments. In private interiors, it cuts a fine figure either on its own or especially when paired with the Soft Modular Sofa, likewise by Jasper Morrison.
