Jasper Morrison Studio's design for the table and chairs for Tristram Hunt is an extension of the 'Fugu' chair that Jasper Morrison Studio developed for Japanese furniture company Maruni, which came in two sizes, one low-lounge and one table-height version.
"We found that the Legacy brief required something a little bit in between – not so low that guests find it hard to get in and out of. The design faces the challenge of trying to make a very comfortable chair from a very hard material. The curves and shapes are an exploration of that problem." - John Tree, Jasper Morrison Studio
