It is our belief, that the perception of the chair is the same in Africa as in Europe since materials, productions and expressions are uniform throughout the world.
In CRAFT, an EU Erasmus project, we work with a new interdisciplinary educational concept focusing on the cross-examinations of traditions of sitting; investigating the comparative historical, cultural and metaphorical dif- ferences the chair embodies as artefact and functional object.
Cultural heritage is a complex matter, to use a concise in the present in order to be able to preserve it for the future. It is our thesis that design is the engineering of the Humanities - and in CRAFT we investigate the chair as a transcultural design discourse.
We examine the connection between the Monobloc and society, and, importantly, we investigate if the chair has contributed to the world heritage. Furthermore, we ask; can the Monobloc create new cultural expressions through interdisciplinary education?
