THE COLLECTION
DESCRIPTION

ZAMPA is a light, graceful stool with gently curving legs.
It has only a few elements and a minimum of joins in keeping with the rigorous expectations of its designer, Jasper Morrison.
Its round, flat seat is a technical achievement in that it is simply structured to provide some flex and therefore a surprising softness in how it sits.

“I noticed some old country stools, handmade with curved stick legs and roughly connected to circular solid wood seats.
This design is a reminder of this very direct solution to having something to sit on.
Their charm and character are irresistible though they couldn’t be more direct and everyday in a practical sense.
This new version is light and adaptable for use as a stool or small side table beside the bed, in the bathroom or wherever they’re needed.”

“Design is an unpredictable process. While designing the Zampa stools I never imagined we would add a chair to the family. If Mattiazzi had asked me to design a chair first I very much doubt it would be as good as this one. Seen as a family it looks perfectly natural that there’s a chair, and I think the chair brings a lot of extra character to the stools which on their own might have seemed a bit minimal to some.”
