Monobloc is the established term for the ubiquitous stackable plastic chair that can be found on patios and in yards, snack bars, and campgrounds around the globe. Although despised by design aficionados, it is arguably the most successful piece of furniture in the world.

220°C Virus Monobloc is an entertaining documentation of the love-hate relationship designers have with this chair. In addition to homage paid by renowned designers including Philippe Starck, Jerszy Seymour, Maarten Baas, and Konstantin Grcic, the book presents a range of work, photography, and art that is a tongue-in-cheek take on the phenomenon of this chair.

The name 220°C Virus Monobloc refers to the production process of this piece of furniture: the chair is manufactured from a single press of 220°C hot polypropylene mashed through an extruder into a mold.
