    Monobloc chair sculptures by artist Bert Loeschner is a project that breathes new life into banal white plastic chairs. Loeschner‘s project examines the role of the “infamous garden chair” in contemporary design culture. The artist uses heat to modify the chairs into striking sculptural pieces that are sometimes functional, and absolutely always witty and clever. 10 points from me!

    Original Monobloc chair was designed by Vico Magistretti in 1967. Since then it has been produced and reinterpreted many times the world over, eventually becoming the most common and most recognised lightweight stackable plastic chair on the planet.
