or Call to Order

More than 20 years since the orig­i­nal version, this family of seats designed by Jasper Morri­son now welcomes the Tate Color chair that comes in an array of stack­able chairs and stools of two differ­ent heights, with a high or low back­rest, and is made of aniline-stained ash plywood in white, mud, anthracite, pumpkin, brick, grass green, petrol, and Pruss­ian blue.

The base of the Tate Color chairs is avail­able in a wide range of options: four legs with a satined stain­less steel finish or matte satined lacquer, with a sled base in satined stain­less steel or matte varnished in white, anthracite or mud, and five polished chrome spokes, with feet or castors. The four-legged version in stain­less steel can also be equipped with a reclin­able table in thick black laminate.

Other versions include Tate Wood, a collec­tion of oak and mahogany veneered chairs and stools, as well as Tate Soft, a collec­tion of uphol­stered chairs and stools.
