Flotsam & Jetsam: Monobloc

"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 in the form of an algorithmic perpetuum mobile. The everyday, casual form of the Monobloc is pitted as a stark contrast 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.
