We have always specialized in the specific ambit of bar and wine service objects. Initially, in the 1920s and 1930s, these were silver-plated brass and alpaca items, followed by Carlo Alessis 1940s pop series. More recently there was the "Avio" series by Mazzeri and Massoni, still included in our catalog, with the 1957 shaker (art. 870) certainly the worlds best-selling object of its type. In the late 1970s Sottsass designed decidedly professional objects. For a while we have been working on a new series, which has been entrusted not to one but to a number of designers. We are now presenting the first two results of this design operation. The "Cosmo" shaker, designed by Marc Newson, with an ultra thick glass body finished in a fine diamond pattern to enable a perfect grip, and with a plastic central section and lid. "Bolly", the wine cooler designed by Jasper Morrison, was developed in collaboration with the well-known French champagne producer, Bollinger of Ay, and is an addition to the family of objects created by our favorite British designer.

“My grandfather had decorated one room of his house in the Scandinavian style of the ‘60s—bare floors, long-haired white rugs—and in it was a Braun record player with wooden side panels. I was impressed by the room and the record player.” – Jasper Morrison
Jasper Morrison was born in London in 1959. He studied at the Kingston School of Art and the Royal College of Art, graduating in 1985. Since 1986 he has opened his Office for Design in London.
Jasper Morrison became a leading figure of “New Simplicity,” a movement that advocated a more modest and also more serious approach to design. In addition to furniture, he has also created lamps, home accessories, textiles, a tram system for the city of Hanover, Germany and a bus shelter for the Vitra Campus in Weil am Rhein.
Recent projects include the design of the furniture for the Tate Modern in London, the Folding Air-Chair and Low Air-Table for Magis, flatware, glassware and other home accessories for Alessi, the Flos Glo-Ball lighting series and furniture for Vitra.
Jasper Morrison Ltd. is currently based in London and Paris.
