Originally manufactured by SCP in 1986 and now reissued, Side Table was Jasper Morrison’s first design to go into production. An exercise in refinement, the frame is made from hand-formed steel with brazed brass joints and finished with a powder coat. Available in 2 versions, as a high table with double circular glass tiers or a low model with a single glass tier, this timeless piece is made in the EU.
- 1 Tier: 18.1" h x 16.5" w x 16.5"d (46x42x42cm)
- 2 Tier: 25.6" h x 16.5" w x 16.5" d(65x42x42cm)

“We do things in 3-D on computers these days,” says Jasper Morrison, reflecting on a 35-year career as a designer. “We are considerably more efficient and precise, and we are able to have much more control over the finished article.” This giant of British design has been responsible for everything from alarm clocks to appliances, from telephones to trains (the Hannover Tram, the largest European light rail of its time.) Along the way, he’s collaborated with numerous brands including Alessi, Cappellini, Muji and Sony. Yet Jasper is unpretentious about his vast influence, honing in on a product’s function and even entitling his recent retrospective "Thingness," which, with typical perspective, he defines as "the quality that makes a thing good at what it does.”
