of new or unexpected forms, Morrison takes familiar

Born in England in 1959, Morrison was raised in both
Germany and the United States before his family settled
in London, where he attended Kingston College of Art
and the Royal College of Art. During school, Morrison
was influenced by the work of the Memphis designers
out of Milan for their conceptual approach to design.
His early work caught the attention of critics and

World Without Words" and in turn piqued the interest
of Rolf Fehlbaum, the chairman of Vitra.
