Jasper Morrison Room

This room is designed by Jasper Morrison, a leading British designer, best known for his work in furniture, lighting, tableware, and everyday products.

His design philosophy, termed "super normal," is a pursuit of low-key, intuitive design that prioritizes the performance of a product and the pleasure in its use. Enjoy the warmth of natural materials, from the wood-paneled bedroom to the stone-clad bathroom and cypress soaking tub. The spacious room overlooks the atrium of the Heritage Tower. Morrison designed the room without a television, to allow guests to fully relax and enjoy the atmosphere.


Born in London in 1959, Morrisson studied design at Kingston Polytechnic, the Royal College of Art, and Berlin’s HdK, before opening his Office for Design in London. He seeks to design objects that fit seamlessly into everyday surroundings. He works with leading manufacturers of furniture, lighting, electronics, and more, including Capellini, Vitra, Flos, Alessi, and Muji.

"When we visited the old Shiroiya Hotel, it didn’t have a very welcoming atmosphere. I wanted the room we designed to be the opposite: warm and protective. I started to think of wooden paneling for the walls, and that led me to the idea of the room being a wooden box. There’s a big window that looks onto the hotel atrium so you can enjoy the atmosphere of the public space. Still, if you want to be more private, you can close the wooden window shutters and the room becomes a kind of packing case like the ones made to transport art, and the precious content is you!"
