HAL Barstool

HAL Barstool
by Vitra

Designed by
Jasper Morrison
for Vitra 2013

The HAL Barstool by Jasper Morrison pairs the unassuming seat shell of the large family of chairs with a height-adjustable swivel pedestal with a comfortable footrest, on an elegant circular base plate. The HAL Barstool’s gas spring mechanism sinks comfortably under the user for an optimum seating experience.

Special is generally less useful than normal’: this statement sums up Jasper Morrison’s guiding principle for creating designs that are ‘super normal’ rather than extraordinary, showing deference to the dictates of daily life – just like HAL. As a reinterpretation of the multifunctional shell chair, HAL comprises a versatile seating family 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.
