Place sofa is Jasper Morrison's interpretation of what is now a modern classic sofa type. A low lounge sofa with a decidedly horizontal thrust. With carefully chosen proportions, much comfort and no decorative frills, Place sofa offers the key features in the purest of condensed form. Voluminous, slightly rounded cushions with soft fabric or leather covers invite you to lounge on Place sofa, and the high-grade inner workings ensure enduring comfortable seating. Thanks to its modular structure, the Place sofa's shape can be defined personally and changed at any time. With Place sofa, Jasper Morrison has successfully coupled the typical informal feel of this type of sofa with highly precise finishing and great expressive clarity, and thus renewed the typology firmly in line with his philosophy of supernormal design.
Born in London, Jasper Morrison studied design at the Royal College of Art and at the HdK in Berlin. Editor of the Design Year Book in 1999 with a passion for the history of design. Morrison's objects provide a quiet contrast to the creative exuberance of the Eighties. The visual restraint, high functionalism and constructive simplicity attract attention to his work.
