Tadao Ando Wire

Tadao Ando will build a bent-plywood chair, dammit, come hell or high water! Set debut at the Milan Furniture Fair next week, the piece sounds like it was a royal pain for the Pritzker Prize-winning architect ("I never promised you it would be easy," he warned) and manufacturer Carl Hansen & Son. "We have managed, and it's a wonderful chair, but I tell you it has given us gray hairs," said a Hansen rep. Building one of Tom Ford's houses, however? No big deal. [NYT]
