After graduating at the Royal College of the Arts in London, Turkish automotive designer Murat Günak started his career at Ford before moving to Mercedes where he designed the first C-Class and SLK. In 1994 he became head of design at Peugeot where he worked on the 206 CC, 307 and 607; as head designer of Volkswagen he designed models such as the Passat CC.
Then a groundbreaking new car steers his career in a completely new direction: with the MIA-electric – a thoroughly green car – Murat Günak created a pioneering concept in the urban electric car market.
MIA is a beautiful car, ultracompact, silent, economical and with zero-emissions conceived to simplify urban driving.

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.
