Thinking Man's Chair 2021 Edition

Thinking Man's Chair 2021 by Jasper Morrison for Cappellini.

twentytwentyone celebrate their 25th anniversary in their namesake year.
To acknowledge the milestone twentytwentyone plan to launch a range of unique, collaborative designs.

Working with Jasper Morrison and Giulio Cappellini, we have produced a worldwide exclusive edition of 25 chairs in a hot-dip zinc-galvanised finish. Each chair is consecutively numbered and marked with a stainless steel plaque.

“I love the idea of galvanised Thinking Man’s chair produced in 25 pieces. We can think to a numbered edition and I would like to call it TM 2021 chair.”

Giulio Cappellini

When twentytwentyone opened in 1996, Jasper Morrison was one of the first young designers to be displayed in the shop. In turn, twentytwentyone were one of the few dealers offering Cappellini productions. Founder Giulio Cappellini was visionary in deciding to curate a collection to look beyond Italy and champion international designers.

For our anniversary, we were keen to revisit our formative years and celebrate a design that was instrumental in both Morrison’s career and our reputation as a progressive design retailer.

We recalled a conversation initiated many years ago, in which twentytwentyone considered how the Thinking Man’s Chair might be with a galvanised finish – akin to roadside railings that were utilitarian and indestructible, but with a crystalline finish.

“Not long after I designed the Thinking Man’s chair in about 1990, I came across a couple of young design dealers in Alfies Market in London and bought some Joe Colombo lights from them. The market stall became a shop selling new furniture, called twentytwentyone. And here we are thirty years on with one of my earliest designs in a new finish proposed by twentytwentyone. I don’t know why I didn’t think of it earlier!”

Jasper Morrison

In addition to the Thinking Man’s Chair, twentytwentyone will be launching more limited editions of classic designs and exclusive products as the year progresses. 

Each release celebrates a designer that has played an important part in the twentytwentyone story. The coming months will see launches from the likes of Robin Day, Alvar Aalto, Anni Albers and Barber Osgerby and will include a celebratory 25-year anniversary event later in the year.
