EVO-C is a successful, uncompromising iteration of the principle and characteristics of the classic cantilever chair in the material of plastic. Thanks to today's gas injection moulding technology, plastic structures can achieve the proven strength and rigidity of cantilevered tubular steel constructions. The load-bearing structure is formed by hollow tube-like components that flow seamlessly into the planar surfaces of the seat and back.
Morrison's aim was to eliminate all superfluous details: the shape of EVO-C, which is made entirely from 100% recyclable polypropylene, is determined by the indispensable factors for achieving stability and comfort. It combines the springy properties of tubular steel with the comfort of an ergonomic seat shell.
The use of a single material gives EVO-C a cohesive appearance. Its silhouette is so graceful that the chair almost disappears behind the sitter. And when not in use, the chair resembles a two-legged sculpture growing out of the ground, which serves as a discreetly elegant substitute for the absent owner.
EVO-C is available in a selection of colours.
Known for thinking outside the box, Jasper Morrison is one of the most successful industrial designers of the past few decades. Together with his colleague Naoto Fukasawa, he defined the term 'super normal', which in his opinion answers the question of what 'good design' should really be. In his work, he strives to create good examples of understated, useful and responsible design. Morrison has developed several projects in collaboration with Vitra, including the Basel Chair, the Place Sofa and the HAL chair family. His designs are represented in New York's Museum of Modern Art and other prominent museum collections around the world.
