Lernert & Sander are two Dutch artists and friends who decided that working alone was getting boring and started collaborating on art related projects. Since their first video “Chocolate Bunny” they’ve been working on commercials, leaders, art movies, documentaries and installations. Their aim is to make simple and communicative works, that takes little note of the existing border between contemporary art and commercial projects. Their highly aesthetic, humorous and dedicated works are often challenging the media and its viewer, in a simple but very effective way.
Sander Plug (1969) works as a freelance graphic designer and artist. Lernert Engelberts (1977) works as a director and writer. Both Lernert and Sander are contributors for Butt Magazine and are currently living and working in Amsterdam.

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.
