Jasper Morrison’s Ambient Installation at VitraHaus

VitraHaus enlisted British designer Jasper Morrison to transform the Level I of their headquarters in Weil am Rhein, Germany. Spanning 150 square meters, the space he envisioned is part studio, part salon, and part office, designed for a fictional dweller.

For the installation, Morrison selected items he’s designed in muted colors, while electing to go bold with other people’s designs, resulting in a cozy, yet visually dynamic space.

From Jasper Morrison:

This is the apartment of Allard Pierson, an abstract artist who doesn’t exhibit his sculptures because nobody’s interested in abstract art anymore, so he lives at home with them and occasionally invites people to dinner, to show them his new work.

All of the products used can be purchased via Vitra.

The dining area features pieces made using natural materials and earthy colors to create an understated space.
