in detail

He cooperates with internationally popular companies such as Alessi, Cappellini, Muji or Vitra. The exhibition is Morrison's first retrospective in the world, combining key moments from the designer's career of 35 years to date. Chairs, armchairs, drinking glasses, lamps, shoes or adhesive tape: Morrison has no limits to his work in matters and implementation of design. The exhibition is based on simplicity, which mostly refers to the objects' effect rather than their design implementation.

The "supernormal" aspects are his creative basis and at the same time his demand of himself as a designer. The restrained design enables Morrison to achieve minimalist results at the highest demands to his design. In his objects, shape moves into the background to the benefit of successful function. His exhibition shows furniture, kitchen objects and household appliances in chronological sequence. Archive and picture material supplement the presenta-tion and offer insights into different sections of time.
