Widely known for his harmonious, essential take on modernism, British designer Jasper Morrison describes Pon as an alternative to the “overrated and badly named ‘coffee table.’” His series of solid-oak tables is all about options — circular in shape and modest in size, they come in various heights to function solo or in countless configurations. Ideal for placing a laptop or tablet, a book or magazine or a cocktail, it's as smart a stand-alone beside a lounge chair as it is in a grouping by a sofa setup.

“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.”
