Stackable beech chair
‘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 15 different chair bases can be combined with a seat shell in polypropylene (HAL), in plywood (HAL Ply) or with a lightly padded shell covered in leather (HAL Leather). In the versions with a polypropylene shell and powder-coated base, HAL is also suitable for use in outdoor settings. As additional options, a fabric seat cover in various colours is available for all versions of HAL, and models with a plastic seat shell can be outfitted with a fixed seat cushion.
The related HAL Armchair rounds out the HAL family.
In the version with a four-legged base and a powder-coated finish in ivory or basic dark, HAL Tube is weatherproof and therefore also suitable for use on balconies or in gardens. Special additives retard the fading of the seat shell colours from the sun's rays.
