NOBODY / Designer
Komplot Design is the studio that was set up in Copenhagen by Boris Berlin (b. 1953) and Poul Christiansen (b. 1947) in 1987. In 2011 Berlin and Christiansen parted company to work on other projects, but still maintain Komplot’s active projects. Komplot had a multidisciplinary approach, working across industrial, graphic and furniture design. Their work received widespread acclaim and won numerous international design awards. Their ethos was guided by the need to tell stories as well as to solve functional problems. Their designs are recognised as technically sophisticated, conceptually strong and aesthetically expressive. For HAY, Komplot created the groundbreaking Nobody chair, the first monoblock dining chair to use only textile in its construction.
