‘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 an additional option, a fabric seat cover is available for HAL in a variety of colours.

The related HAL Armchair rounds out the HAL family.

The fabric covers for the seat shells of HAL and HAL Ply provide enhanced comfort. They are available in various colours and can be easily attached and removed.
