Jasper Morrison, a name synonymous with design worldwide, is the name behind the Pittella cork joinery pull. Known for elevating simple and everyday materials to maximum effect, Morrison has given a new meaning to cork. Finding beauty in every day objects and the often-humble things that surround us, the R2012 cork joinery pull is an important reminder that design need not always be equated with luxurious and expensive materials.
Morrison received a Bachelor of Design degree from Kingston Polytechnic Design School in 1982 and a Master's degree in Design from the Royal College of Art, London, in 1985. In March 2007, he was awarded an honorary doctorate in design from Kingston University. Today, Morrison is one of a small group of industrial designers who work on a global scale by using advanced technology to develop mass-manufactured products.
