“The lines of this easy chair ‘dS – 315′ are determined by a hand-sewn seam 26 metres in length. Like a crustacean’s shell, the enveloping outer skin reveals a soft inner life that affords a maximum of comfort – plus a sense of snug security.”

'Monopod' by Jasper Morrison

'Monopod' by Jasper Morrison

Two years ago Vitra presented the original design of Jasper Morrison’s ‘Monopod’ for the first time as a cork chair which was part of the second Vitra Edition. Now the German manufacturer has, without much publicity, included an upholstered version of the chair in its collection. It must have become clear very quickly that this massive but elegantly proportioned armchair is suitable for series production after all.

The Monopod stands sturdily, tapering with an elegant curve to a wedge-shaped backrest. As a small visitor armchair, the Monopod is a companion for sofas and larger armchairs, and in public areas thanks to its solidity can be used in lounges and reception areas.
