‘Special is generally less useful than normal’: this statement sums up Jasper Morrison’s guiding principle for creating designs that are not extraordinary but rather ‘super normal’ and – just like HAL – that show deference to the dictates of daily life. With HAL, he has reinterpreted the multifunctional shell chair and created a versatile family of chairs with a clean contemporary look. The shape of the seat shell provides great freedom of movement in a variety of sitting positions – even sideways or astride the chair.
The 15 different chair bases can be combined with a seat shell in polypropylene (HAL), in plywood (HAL Ply) or with a lightly padded shell covered in leather (HAL Leather). In the versions with a polypropylene shell and powder-coated base, HAL is also suitable for use in outdoor settings. As additional options, a fabric seat cover in various colours is available for all versions of HAL, and models with a plastic seat shell can be outfitted with a fixed seat cushion.
