JASPER MORRISON/CAPPELLINI, THIRTY YEARS OF SUCCESSFUL PRODUCTS
During London Design Festival 2018, the international design exhibit held in the British capital, Cappellini launched an exhibition at its showroom named ‘Jasper Morrison/Cappellini, thirty years of successful products.’ The exhibition was conceived to celebrate the long-standing partnership between Cappellini and the renowned Londoner designer Jasper Morrison. Their collaboration was born in 1988 with the first edition of “Thinking Man’s Chair”, an iconic piece of furniture made from lacquered metal, with a frame in tube section, seat and a back in flat bars. Morrison & Cappellini’s collaborative relationship progressed with even greater success in the upcoming years thanks to both their research of new materials alongside advanced manufacturing systems. Jasper Morrison created many iconic works for Cappellini overcoming the trends of the moment.
