Among the more glamorous names showing their latest creations at the Salone Internazionale del Mobile, or Milan Furniture Fair, in early April is Zaha Hadid, who, if her recent output is any indication, must have Herculean stamina.

A self-rotating structure built on the principles of Euclidean geometry with the back, arms and seat appearing to form a single flower bud ready to burst open.” And we believe them.
