According to Austrian designers Sonja Stummerer and Martin Hablesreiter, “People should talk about food as an aspect of culture, as the most important good, as business, as a design product of daily life.” They founded the interdisciplinary design studio honey & bunny productions, curated the exhibition “Food Design” for Museumsquartier Vienna and performed as eat designers in Milan, Amsterdam and many other places. As authors they published the award-winning books “Food Design” and “Food Design XL” that show how shape, colour, smell, consistency, production methods, history and stories influence food product design. Stummerer and Hablesreiter have given a number of international lectures and taught at schools including Bucharest and Istanbul. In 2008 they directed the movie “Food design – a film”.

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.
