Kustaa Saksi’s illustrations are a syrupy disarray of elements: playful, paradoxical, often over-glossy, inviting, troubling, messy, and yet strangely clear. Radiating meaning, bending what’s real and distilling what’s unreal he combines organic touches and viscous shapes into new world psychedelia. Finnish born illustrator Kustaa Saksi has been working with various clients in the world of fashion, music and entertainment such as Nike, A-POC, Catskills Records, Adobe, and many more.

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.
