Jasper Morrison's All Plastic Chair is reminiscent of the archetypal wooden chairs that have been familiar in Europe for many decades. By utilising a modern material, the chair is able to make significant advancements in both comfort and appearance.
The flattened forms of the frame are cast in a strong single piece, while the thin seat surface is organically shaped and the backrest more finely modelled than the back support of conventional wooden chairs. As a result, the All Plastic Chair is strikingly compact and graceful, and the combination of plastic components makes it extraordinarily comfortable.
Whereas the frame consists of a more rigid, high-strength polypropylene, the seat and backrest adapt to the contours of the sitter’s body. The backrest is connected to the frame by twin shafts cushioned with rubber buffers, which allow it to flex gently in response to the sitter’s movements, further enhancing the chair’s comfort.
Thanks to the use of high-performance plastics that are resistant to both sunlight and water, the All Plastic Chair is a robust, durable chair for indoor and outdoor settings. It is an excellent choice for home dining rooms as well as cafés, restaurants and other public venues.
