Product description

LITTLE NOBODY
Komplot and HAY’s Little Nobody Chair was an industrial sensation when it was launched in 2007. A stackable chair moulded in a single piece from one hundred percent recyclable plastic converted into felt had never been done before. Nobody is soft, comfortable and versatile with no potentially dangerous hard edges or loose parts. The lightweight chair has the additional advantage of making no noise or scratches when pulled across the floor, and is easy to pick up and move around. The chair is perfect for children, who tend to challenge furniture by using it for a wide range of purposes.

Concept

Nobody was an industrial sensation when it was launched. A chair made in recyclable plastic converted into felt and moulded in one piece, which was stackable to boot. Nobody was designed for prison use, as the chair has no hard edges and therefore cannot be used as a threatening object. It is encouraging to see design rise to such a complex challenge while also finding new sustainable production and design solutions. Nobody represents nothing less than a synthesis of intellectual capacity, challenging practices and innovative design.

Little Nobody tells Nobody’s story of recycling in industrial production and innovative design in a miniature format. Nobody was designed for use in prisons, as it is made in one piece and has no sharp edges. In addition, Nobody makes no noise or scratches when it is pulled across the floor, and the light-weight chair is easy to pick up and move around. These properties also make the Nobody concept perfect for children, who tend to challenge furniture by using it for a wide range of purposes besides the original intention.
