'Special is generally less useful than normal': this statement sums up Jasper Morrison's guiding principle for creating designs that are not extraordinary but rather 'super normal' and – just like HAL – that show deference to the dictates of daily life. With HAL, he has reinterpreted the multifunctional shell chair and created a versatile family of chairs with a clean contemporary look. The shape of the seat shell provides great freedom of movement in a variety of sitting positions – even sideways or astride the chair.

The HAL A-Stacker is the model specifically designed for mass seating requirements in the large HAL family of chairs – ideal for halls, auditoriums and conference settings. It is stackable, offers an optional seat cushion for added comfort and can be equipped with a series of row connectors and numbering elements.



  • Glides: Plastic or felt glides in basic dark or white
  • Seat shell: Black beech, with or without an optional seat pad from the 'Twill' fabric range.
  • Base: stacking four-legged base of chromed, tubular steel. Up to 6 chairs can be stacked on the floor, up to 10 chairs on the stacking trolley.
