The Good Life

I always liked the pictures (and comments) that Jasper Morrison published in Vitra's website. His observation of banal objects, praise of simplicity and the capture of inadvertent installations in the four corners of the world, made these photos an unique look trough the eyes of the british designer. Published by Lars Müller, the book The Good Life brings to the paper these pictures (and many others), documenting Morrison's inspirations, as well as his visual appetite for the everyday things and the ordinary, a declared divorce of the more exuberant design world.

"Just what is it that catches the eye, and why? What’s the significance of a broken flowerpot, a pair of identical tables side by side, a garden hose wrapped around an old car wheel? In this collection of photo essays, the famous designer Jasper Morrison examines and imagines the life behind a series of seemingly ordinary situations."
