The NOBODY chair is produced in one single process by thermo
pressing the polymer fiber - PET felt mat. PET felt is
a 100% recycled/recyclable material produced from used
soda/water bottles. The production process neither demands
any additives like glues or resins, nor any additional
materials like screws or reinforcements. The NOBODY Chair
is eco-conscious in respect to resources while exhibiting
an organic aesthetic that is as beautiful as it is functional.??
The materially pure properties of the PET felt and ease
of cleaning give NOBODY additional benefits. The chair
supports itself and has no frame. Light and stackable,
NOBODY can be used in both public and residential interiors.
Designed by Komplot Design (see below), Boris Berlin (born
in 1953) & Poul Christiansen (born in 1947) for HAY of
Denmark. NOBODY is available in the US from MOD -

Komplot Design’s multidisciplinary activities within product,
furniture and graphic design, from tractor to office furniture
systems and to brochures and corporate identity programmes,
are not only giving the complexity of design approach,
but also positioning our design into the “electric” field
of intense exchange of experience and attitudes of different
We believe that good design is not just a solution of the
primary so called pure functional problems, but creation
of the message, that fills objects and concepts with cultural,
philosophic, aesthetic and poetic content . . .
