Noted product designers Naoto Fukasawa and Jasper Morrison recently "...decided to assemble a collection of products, which were similarly enjoyable to use and to look at without resorting to stylistic gimmicks. The pieces they chose - ranging from inexpensive items like a paper clip and Bic biro, to Fukasawa's stools and the futuristic Joyn workspace designed by the French brothers Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec for Vitra - are now on display in Super Normal, an exhibition at the Axis Gallery in Tokyo." Read the rest of Alice Rawsthorn's article here. Have a look at the slide show, too, which has examples of Super Normal pieces such as the KnifeForkSpoon cutlery on the left, designed by Jasper Morrison for Jessi.
