With the Basel Chair Jasper Morrison rejuvinates the classic plain wooden chair that has been industrially produced in large quantities and in many variations for almost 100 years. The eye is immediately struck by its harmoniously balanced proportions, and on closer inspection the chair represents clear innovation. The seat and backrest of the Basel Chair are manufactured from a synthetic material which can be shaped more organically, and therefore exhibit a more textured surface. In general, the chairs can be produced thinner – and so more flexibly – than chairs made only of wood. Thanks to this combination of materials, the Basel Chair provides clearly improved sitting comfort and, in its two-tone variants, is especially pleasing to the eye.
