Monobloc by Bert Löschner

View all 7 Photos

The white plastic garden chair has since become an icon for the blasé backyard scene, but artist Bert Löschner has given the chair a new character in his work, Monobloc. By applying heat to the plastic, Löschner deforms the chairs in anthropomorphic style, often repositioning the arms of the chairs to freeze the entity in a striking new pose. The garden chairs gallantly hold umbrellas (a perfect solution for a rainy day), swing happily on trees, and even hitchhike in their new adventures. The project is clever and humorous… but you might want to check on your own chair in the backyard to make sure it hasn’t run off to join its fun-loving riends.
