What feeds the inspiration of the designer? Observation.
In Jasper Morrison's collection of pictures, the icons of design history meet up with the unassuming objects of everyday life. Every picture tells a story and creates a new one in juxtaposition with its neighbor -- without words, in the language of form. Morrison responds to the arbitrariness of form with simplicity and complexity, poetry and humor in a repertoire of compelling designs. A World Without Words is a pocket-sized school of seeing that addresses designers and consumers who wish to explore the universe of goods.
Jasper Morrison ( *1959 ) studied at the Kingston Polytechnic Design School and the Royal College of Art in London. He works as a designer between London, Paris, and Tokyo. His designs are produced by leading manufacturers of furniture, lighting, electronics, shoes, and more.
