NOBODY'S Perfect

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 - Call us for more information: 212.925.5506


We Believe
that design is an intermediate body - a link that appears into existence in the tension of no mans land: Tension between art and engineering, between manufacturer and consumer/user, between different cultures, between tradition and innovation, rationality and intuition, logic and emotion . . .

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 branches.

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 . . .
