Looking Back at ‘Thingness’

Earlier this year Jasper Morrison’s first-ever retrospective was hosted at CID (centre d'innovation et de design au Grand-Hornu) a leading cultural centre in Belgium. A restored 19th-century mining company near Mons, originally designed by neoclassical architect Bruno Renard.

The five-month exhibition (May – September 2015) was dedicated to the designer’s 35-year career and brought together a wealth of his designs from furniture, kitchenware and home electronics, including the DP 01 Cordless Phone, the AC 01 Alarm Clock and the UC 01 USB Desktop Charger. With over 15,000 visitors the exhibition was testimony to Morrison’s remarkable body of work which is steadfast in its his principle of simplicity and involves with some of the world’s leading manufacturers, among them: Cappellini, Alessi, Flos, Magis and Vitra; Muji; and technology power-houses  like Samsung and Sony.
