Why is it Special?
The Rotary Tray is Jasper Morrison's contemporary rendering of the classic etagere. In keeping with his characteristic 'super normal' design philosophy, it has an understated design and subtle colouring. The Rotary Tray comes with a rotating top tier and can be used for a wide variety of functions.
Jasper Morrison was born in London in 1959. He studied at the Kingston School of Art and the Royal College of Art, graduating in 1985. Since 1986 he has opened his Office for Design in London.
Jasper Morrison became a leading figure of “New Simplicity,” a movement that advocated a more modest and also more serious approach to design. In addition to furniture, he has also created lamps, home accessories, textiles, a tram system for the city of Hanover, Germany and a bus shelter for the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein.
Recent projects include the design of the furniture for the Tate Modern in London, the Folding Air-Chair and Low Air-Table for Magis, flatware, glassware and other home accessories for Alessi, the Flos Glo-Ball lighting series and furniture for Vitra.
Jasper Morrison Ltd. is currently based in London and Paris.
