The organizers of NeoCon wanted something to attract attention to this year’s World’s Trade Fair celebrating its 35th anniversary. Well, they found that something. A 40-foot-tall Italian chair which will be on display June 16 through the 18 at the Merchandise Mart. And is it just me and my adolescent humor, or does anyone else think it’s hilarious that the fair is billed as WTF?
