The Plate Dining Table is an evolution of the Plate coffee table, intended for the dining room. It takes up the concept and aesthetics: a simple and refined design – super normal – characteristic of Jasper Morrison's work. It is based on the game of the skillfully balanced proportions and the alternation between smooth curves and sharp edges. The materials – aluminum base, thin table top made of solid wood, Carrara marble, epoxy MDF or glass – contribute to this game of subtle contrasts. By their modesty, the Plate Dining Table can be associated with any style of furniture.
Jasper Morrison, about the "super normal" design: "The objects that perform best do so not because they look beautiful or valuable, but because they have the essential code of being good at what they are."

Known for thinking outside the box, Jasper Morrison is one of the most successful industrial designers of the past few decades.
Together with his colleague Naoto Fukasawa, he defined the term 'super normal', which in his opinion answers the question of what 'good design' should really be. In his work, he strives to create good examples of understated, useful and responsible design.
Morrison has developed several projects in collaboration with Vitra, including the All Plastic Chair, the Soft Modular Sofa and the HAL chair family. His designs are represented in New York's Museum of Modern Art and other prominent museum collections around the world.
