Early Work


An exhibition of seven works by Jasper from the 1980s, at the Jasper Morrison Shop, London.


Jasper began his career in London in the 1980s designing furniture from ready-made components and selling it in small batches. This exhibition is an opportunity to see at close quarters some of those rare and characterful pieces, some not seen in public for over thirty years.

The exhibition presents the Handlebar Table, designed in Jasper’s final year at Kingston; the Laboratory Light and the Flower Pot Table, which were assembled while Jasper was studying in Berlin; the Wing-nut Chair, part of a final-year project at the Royal College of Art; the Thinking Man’s Chair, a design soon after graduation from the RCA; and Universal System, a set of drawers for Cappellini at the end of the decade.

The seven pieces are accompanied by contemporary publications, sketchbooks, drawings and photographs from Jasper’s archive.
