JASPER MORRISON:
CORKS

This exhibition puts on view Jasper Morrison’s first complete series of furniture realized in cork. As limited editions, these pieces mark a departure from the designer’s usual methods of industrial production and initiate a new collaborative partnership that speaks to Kasmin’s continued engagement with presenting boundary-pushing work at the intersection of art and design. A domestic exhibition design will bring together examples of Morrison’s chaise longue, a fireplace, chairs, stools, and bookshelves.

Morrison’s interest in cork stems from its remarkable functionality as well as its unique atmospheric qualities, which he recognizes as a key design component of an object’s long-term success. Developed by the cork oak tree as a protective covering, this particular iteration of the material is reconstituted from unselected wine bottle corks, some still visible in their original shape.

His designs have long been the domestic choice of creative professionals, whilst simultaneously populating public art spaces and institutional settings. In 2014, he designed the furniture for the extension to Tate Modern, more than ten years after working on the opening of the museum with the architects Herzog & de Meuron, and in 2009, he was invited by the Musée des Arts Décoratifs de Bordeaux to create an interventional installation of his contemporary designs interwoven within the historical collections.
