A World Without Words by Jasper Morrison
By Lars Müller Publishers
"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.

Known for thinking outside the box, Jasper Morrison is one of the most successful industrial designers of the past few decades. Together with his colleague Naoto Fukasawa, he defined the term 'super normal', which in his opinion answers the question of what 'good design' should really be. In his work, he strives to create good examples of understated, useful and responsible design. Morrison has developed several projects in collaboration with Vitra, including the All Plastic Chair, the Soft Modular Sofa and the HAL chair family. His designs are represented in New York's Museum of Modern Art and other prominent museum collections around the world.
