'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 swivel office chair HAL Studio is part of the HAL family of chairs by Jasper Morrison and comes on a height-adjustable base with castors for essential comfort. The plywood seat shell option lends an elegant touch to informal work environments and studio offices.
