English product and furniture designer Jasper Morrison (1959 - ) began designing products back in the late 80’s/early 90’s for SCP in London, the German door handle producer FSB, the Office furniture company Vitra, and the Italian furniture producer Cappellini. Morrison and his company are based in London and Paris these days, and for the most part continue to do work for Alessi Spa, Italy; Alias Srl, Italy; Canon Camera Division, Japan; Cappellini Spa., Italy; Established & Sons , England; Flos Spa, Italy; FSB GmbH, Germany; Magis Srl, Italy; Rosenthal AG, Germany; Rowenta, France; Sony Design Centre Europe; Vitra International AG, Switzerland. In addition in 2004, Morrison began consultancies with Samsung Electronics, Korea, Muji (Japan), Ideal Standard (UK) and Olivetti (Italy). The essay entitled “Super Normal” by Lars Müller Publishers (2006) crystallizes what Morrison has been striving to achieve for years … “design forms with a special kind of normality and perfect summary.”
