HAL Soft Wood

HAL Soft Wood
by Vitra

Designed by
Jasper Morrison
for Vitra 2021

HAL Soft’s padded upholstery provides exceptional comfort, with rounded contours that soften the appearance of the distinctive HAL shell. The wooden base adds to the warm and casual feel of HAL Soft Wood. The fabric cover is removable and replaceable as needed.

‘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.


Available in Dumet, Plano, Laser RE, Volo and Credo.

The base is coated with a protective varnish.
