O Cap Swivel Chair
The inspiration for the O‑Cap armchair emerged from the intuition to cut and shape a simple sheet of leather around a chair. A technological evolution of the 2013 Cap-Chair, the O‑Cap armchair by Jasper Morrison reconfirms the extraordinary complexity of the manufacturing process. For this edition, O‑Cap offers a shell in raw cut leather: a detail that offers support and softness to this new armchair’s internal structure, which is made of metal and reduced to the minimum to offer both optimal stability and maximum lightness.
The aluminum base, also reduced to the essential, is available as four spokes with caps or five spokes with or without wheels. Envisioned for the office and lounge areas, the O‑Cap armchair is also readily suitable for residential use.
