MONOBLOC

23.08.2022 - 7:30PM

The Monobloc plastic chair is the best-selling piece of furniture that ever existed, known on every continent, across national borders and social barriers. The feature-length documentary Monobloc tells the story of how this unsightly chair conquered the world – and why: from its commercialization in the 1980s to global production networks, via cultural appropriations and ecological issues.
