Photographer Harri Peccinotti (*1935) is known for his erotic work, most famously for the legendary Pirelli Calendar in 1968 and 1969. As an art director in the 1950s of Rolling Stone and Vanity fair UK, and more recently of Nova, he strongly influenced art and fashion photography throughout the last decades of the 20th century to this day. More recent work includes a fashion shoot for L’Officiel magazine. His oeuvre mainly features themes of sensuality and eroticism.

Monobloc tells the story of the best-selling piece of furniture of all time. Estimates claim there are a billion of these cheap plastic chairs in use all over the world. This unassuming chair threatens our environment and good taste but is indispensable for millions of people to whom a chair is a chair and nothing more. This is the tale of an object viewed through a critical eye on globalisation - a story that spans functionality and beauty, capitalism and sharing, consumption and recycling.
