Jasper Morrison was born in London in 1959 and graduated in Design at Kingston Polytechnic Design School. In 1986 he set up a design office in London and begins to exhibit his work in many galleries and art fairs in Europe. He worked for Vitra, Cappellini, Flos, Alessi, Mattiazzi, Samsung, Sony and Olivetti. As he mentions "the best way to live with our objects is enable them to represent us and our way of being with ease, so that they cease to be a status symbol to become good friends." But his talent is also reflected in numerous publications and in urban projects, such as the Tram Hanover for which he won the IF Transportation Design Prize and the Ecology Award. The Jasper Morrison Ltd. now has headquarters in London and Paris.
