It feels wrong, and we’re sure that Jasper Morrison would agree, to call Moca a novelty. While it has never been seen or exhibited before, in many ways it is a continuation of a classic idea. Pared back to the very essentials, it features a beautifully curved wooden back and seat combined with a statement steel base. Morrison himself describes it as an expression of his “super normal” approach to design — a quest to create objects that are understated, useful and responsible. We’d call it timeless.
However, don’t be fooled by its simple appearance. Moca unites the wisdom of an experienced designer with the unparalleled manufacturing expertise of Vitra to create a wonderfully ergonomic chair. Ideal for sitting in for hours on end, it can also be stacked up to six high, with the clever under-seat protector ensuring the longevity of the veneered surfaces.
