While N.E.R.D.’s new album is due to drop early next year, Pharrell Williams is still taking time and branching out into other industries. Aside from ventures into fashion with Ice Cream and Billionaire Boys Club, Williams has been deeply involved in the art world as of late. Remember Williams in Yi Zhou’s The Ear and the quirky Perspective chairs created with Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin? The man is back again with the gallery to create more chairs. This time around, rather than creating furniture with limbs for parts, Williams draws inspiration from military tanks and designed a series of chairs with tank wheels in place of legs. Simply named The Tank, these chairs come in four colorways, of which the white, baby blue and black will be showcased at Art Basel Miami Beach this year at The Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin. Meanwhile, the pink won’t be produced until January 2010. Check out images and support the artistic undertakings of one of the industry’s favorite music whiz and entrepreneur extraordinaire.
