Jasper Morrison

High-tech design and high-quality workmanship, perfect marble, fine woods and legendary Portuguese corks form the essence of the Swiss premiere on the eve of Art Basel / Design Miami 2018. The Mise-En-Scène of the 40 square meter Zürich salon is arranged with works such as Hipódromo, Eclipse 02 and Secção by Miguel Vieira Baptista; Large Vessel and Tall Vessel by Michael Anastassiades; Cork Kit by Amanda Levete; Cork Bench by Naoto Fukasawa; Bísaro, Pata Negra and Vase with Roots by Fernando Brízio and many more … A treat for true collectors and design lovers. Alpinina by Jasper Morrison was also presented at the BNW Salon in Zürich.

Having set up his Office for Design in London in 1986, Jasper established himself with two installations: Reuters News Centre at Documenta 8 in Kassel in 1987, and Some New Items for the Home at the DAAD Gallery in Berlin in 1988. His earliest designs were produced by Aram and SCP in London, Neotu in Paris, FSB in Germany and Cappellini in Italy. In 1989, he began his long collaboration with Vitra with the exhibition Some New Items for the Home, Part II, at Milan’s Furniture Fair. The 1990s brought collaborations with the Italian companies Alessi, Flos, and Magis, and the German porcelain manufacturer Rosenthal. In the 2000s Jasper began consultancies with Muji, Samsung, Ideal Standard and Established & Sons. In 2006 he and the Japanese designer Naoto Fukasawa organised the exhibition Super Normal at Axis Gallery in Tokyo. The exhibition was followed by a book and toured to London, Milan and New York. It inspired the opening of the Jasper Morrison Shop beside his London studio in 2009 (www.jaspermorrisonshop.com).

Since 2010 Jasper has collaborated with Spanish companies Camper, Kettal and Andreu World, and US companies Maharam and Emeco. He is art director of Swiss electronics company Punkt. Jasper Morrison Ltd currently has offices in London, Tokyo and Paris.


The Alpinina bowl has been specifically designed to make it seem as if it is floating over the surface it is placed on, despite the intrinsic weight of the stone. The elevated and recessed base creates a space that is ideal for lifting the bowl with bare hands. It is a simple piece, meant to be placed on a table, sideboard or kitchen shelf and contain fruit, vegetables or nuts.
