The new chair and stool designed by Jasper Morrison for the Japanese manufacturer Maruni combines the warmth of maple wood with coloured metal parts.
The T Chair is made of 3d machined solid maple wood with seat and back joined with a formed, painted strip of sprung steel which improves comfort.
The coloured metal S shape provides a contrast with the wood and an element of freshness to a familiar typology.
O Stool is similarly of 3d machined solid wood and the stool mid and high have painted steel tube footrests. The handle, consisting of an elongated hole machined through the centre of the seat is shaped for maximum comfort when carrying the stool. It is also a familiar typology revitalised with improved comfort and new materials.
