Widely considered one of the world's best industrial designers, Jasper Morrison has the Midas touch, attracting attention for any and every product he gets his hands on, from his "super normal" furniture to customisable kitchens.
But in 2015, he pushed the limits with two products representing more experimental areas of design. The first was a hardy and stripped-back mobile handset that served as an antithesis to today's smartphones. The MP 01, created for Swiss technology brand Punkt, offered only basic phone functions and was made from ultra-durable black Gorilla Glass.
The second was a prefab, minimal cabin for Japanese interiors brand Muji. Designed to remove the complexity of building a holiday home from scratch, this is a building typology that's fast gaining popularity. It helps that in this project, Morrison was joined by other Hot List favourites Muji, Konstantin Grcic and Naoto Fukasawa.
