Greasing the Wheels
"Support your local hardware store, baker, butcher, grocery..." reads Jasper Morrison's Manifesto
True to form, the Jasper Morrison Manifesto spells it out in pure and simple terms. Citing six ways for a better life, he gives us an insight into his streamlined career and the existence that has gone along with that.
His useful tips will certainly improve the way we spend our time here on Planet Earth, however long that may indeed be. With but a half-dozen points on his anecdotal list, he has gathered in a nutshell some words of wisdom regarding the things he reckons make life entirely worth living. It’s probably worth paying attention to.
Six-point manifesto for a better existence.
Jasper Morrison was born in London in 1959, and received his Master’s degree from the Royal College of Art in 1985. In 1986 he set up Office for Design in London. Today, Jasper Morrison Ltd. consists of three design offices, a main office in London and two branch offices: one in Paris (2002) and one in Tokyo (2007). Services are wide ranging, from furniture to tableware and kitchen products and lighting, electronics and appliance design, designs for public space, and more recently, watches, clocks & shoes. In 2005, he founded Super Normal with Naoto Fukasawa, and the first Super Normal exhibition was held in Tokyo the following year. In 2009 the Jasper Morrison Limited Shop opened in London, and 2011 saw the launch of a webshop.
