FLOTSAM & JETSAM: MONOBLOC treats the ubiquitous plastic chair as a contemporary design classic. In this film we show an enormous hovering cloud of iconic chairs that behave like flotsam and jetsam in breaking waves. Poetry as a kind of algorithmic perpetuum mobile. The everyday, casual form of the monobloc is pitted as a stark contrast in this film against those of the designer und architects’ chairs. Present in larger numbers in the frame, it shows the audacity to have gained a place in the world of exceptional design by mere universal distribution. The Monobloc is a successful meme in physical space.

Premiere at Vitra Design Museum, Weil am Rhein, 2017
