For many, it represents the fall from grace of a piece of furniture and yet it has made design history. It is the world's best-selling piece of furniture, light, stackable and cheap. On the trail of the Monobloc, the team around director Hauke Wendler travelled halfway around the world, discovered amazing stories and met remarkable people. What has fallen by the wayside is a Eurocentric way of thinking in favour of a view that sees the world through different eyes by means of a surprisingly diverse use of a seat. An exciting and entertainingly executed contribution to the topic of globalisation, not least thanks to the wonderful music by Taco van Hettinga.
