Called Village, the stacking chair by Jasper Morrison is made of aluminium and comes with an optional fabric seat pad and backrest.

"This chair pays respect to the long standing codes of metal stacking outdoor chairs while gently refreshing the look," says Kettal.

    Why do you post boring projects like this? I think there is a lot of more interesting stuff to show. I know you support your local London designers a lot, but you should also think about what is worth supporting and what gives a less good impression of the London design scene.

      I’d be interested in knowing what you mean by “gives a less good impression of the London design scene”?

    Do something useful for the world with your influence Mr. Morrison.

    Boring? I think it is absolutely awesome! You could say that they are boring in the sense that they look like something you have seen before, but that´s the point of it. What Jasper Morisson is good at is refining the archetypes. Things that have proven their value over time and that we have a good relationship with are given new value. The old masters like Hans Wegner and Børge Mogensen had a similar approach and I wouldn´t call their work boring. I guess you probably like some of their chairs?

    It is not boring, it is just a good job. No more!

    Echoes of the BarberOsgerby De La Warr Pavilion chair?

    Um exelente trabalho de um verdadeiro artista e conhecedor. A forma segue a funsao… o fundamento primordial do design.
