Basel chair by Jasper Morrison for Vitra.

Dining chair with frame in beech; seat and back in batch-dyed plastic.

Notable are the detail solutions that Morrison developed to join the plastic elements to the wooden base. While the thin plastic seat is fixed to a load-bearing wooden ring by an ingenious plug-in mechanism – without the use of any screws – the back features two web-like vertical projections that are inserted into precision-milled grooves of the elongated rear chair legs. It is intelligent solutions like these that make this harmoniously proportioned chair such an exceptional design despite the initial impressions of normality.

Frame in natural or dark stained beech; seat and backrest made of ASA plastic dyed throughout.

Fitted with plastic glides for carpet. Optional felt glides for hard floors available.
