Tadao Ando Designs Chair as Tribute to Hans J. Wegner

Tadao Ando Chair for Carl Hansen & Son

Renowned Japanese architect Tadao Ando also took part in the Salone del Mobile this year with a reveal of a prototype chair he created for Danish furniture company Carl Hansen & Son. This is his first attempt at designing a chair.

While Wegner’s material is wood and Ando’s is concrete, Mr Ando sought to explore the limits of wooden material to produce a piece that not only continues his personal style of clean lines, but also serves as a tribute to the great Danish designer.

The chair is said to be available sometime in 2013. Stay tuned.
