In the early 1980’s, Jasper Morrison anticipated what was to be the ethical position of the designer in a period of crisis, emerging as one of the instigators of the neo-minimalist movement of the 1990s. This monograph elicits the personality of a designer both concerned by questions of plasticity & efficacy and whose work’s development obeys an implacable logic of eliminating decorative effects in favor of functionalism.
