Video description:
No matter where in the world you’re from, it is very likely that you have already sat in this chair at some point in your life, probably even several times. This is the so-called Monobloc, probably the best-selling chair in history. And still, it’s getting a lot of hate. But why is it everywhere and is it an example of good or bad design?

Music from Artlist.io
Further Information at the end of the video.
Some music tracks are ones we made ourselves so if you are looking for a specific track but it isn't one listed at the end of the video then that's the reason.
