One of the key designers responsible for the innovation in British furniture over the last few years, Jasper Morrison's work represents a reaction to the marketing-led design of the 1980s. The end of the decade sees him making the breakthrough from the world of one-off furniture to large-scale production with important collections being launched in late 1989 and published for the first time in this Design File. This book, the first designed by Morrison, traces the painstaking evolution of his designs, from initial sketches to the final product. It includes a selection from his famous World Slide Show, an extraordinary collection of images which have influenced him and which has previously been shown as a multi-media event in Milan and Berlin. His work is widely published in magazines, and represented in museum collections. This is the first book devoted to him. Peter Dormer's introduction analyzes the processes involved and places Jasper Morrison in the tradition of the designer-maker.
