Early in Jasper Morrison's career, he built a table of beech wood, glass, and two bicycle racing bar handles to give the piece a "mass-produced quality" without benefit of a manufacturer. In 1983, the materials for one table cost about £20.00, and he sold them for five times that. "The somewhat eclectic shape of the table itself was fitting to the mood of the time and my own frame of mind, a kind of poetic, anti-establishment, business-like attitude," Morrison is reported as saying years later.
