Film cover


The feature-length documentary is structured into 7 episodes, filmed on 5 continents. Each of these episodes tells a self-contained story involving different themes, inter alia beauty and design, economic rise and competition, globalisation and efficiency, ideas and ideals. To accomplish this the film accompanies protagonists, both men and women, whose lives are closely linked to the monobloc. Estimates claim that there are a billion units of this chair worldwide. We find out the story of how this unsightly chair took the world by storm – and why.
