The chair that conquered the world

Monobloc tells the story of the best-selling piece of furniture of all time. Estimates claim there are a billion of these cheap plastic chairs in use all over the world. This unassuming chair threatens our environment and good taste but is indispensable for millions of people to whom a chair is a chair and nothing more. This is the tale of an object viewed through a critical eye on globalisation – a story that spans functionality and beauty, capitalism and sharing, consumption and recycling.With a quirky tone and stylised photography, Hauke Wendler manages to make a seemingly banal subject quite exciting. A world tour that looks at the sometimes crucial utility of an everyday object.
