Plastic Chair Project

Monobloc chair investigation

@plasticchairproject

Marieke Luthart investigated the Monobloc chair. A chair that owes its name from its production method: one(mono) piece(bloc) of plastic molded in a shape. Because this process is very short and the production costs are very low, from 1983 onwards the chair was included in our society worldwide.

To gain insight into the social impact of this chair, Marieke designed a live portrait stand by which she invited others to sit on the plastic chair with her. In return for their stories she made them a portrait. She translated their memories in a series of paintings.
