“Hello, my name is HAL”, is what the onboard computer said in the space shuttle Discovery. As an intelligent being, HAL is emphatic and recognizes people’s needs.

The British designer Jasper Morrison made the Supercomputer out of Stanley Kubrick’s classic “2001: A Space Odyssey” with a wink to the name of his chair. Like his cinematic model, HAL is characterized by his helpful nature. But unlike his namesake in the film, he always remains well-disposed. The chair is always open to new situations and recognizes new demands, in order to react carefully.

'Special is generally less useful than normal': this statement sums up Jasper Morrison's guiding principle for creating designs that are not extraordinary but rather 'super normal' and – just like HAL – that show deference to the dictates of daily life. The seat of the chair allows different seating positions, freedom of movement as well as high comfort, and supports the dynamism of seating.

The HAL Ply Wood consists of a plywood seat as well as a non-stackable, solid wooden frame out of light oak wood, dark oak wood and black pigmented walnut. The connection seat-frame consists of powder-coated aluminium die casting. The chairs are available with synthetic pads for carpets or felt pads for hard (wood) floors.
