Zaha Hadid’s latest design collection is on exhibition at Maison et Objet. It´s a very special collection that represents a moment of design inspiration and creativity, providing an opportunity to express ideas through different scales and through different media. Read on and find out this outstanding collection.
Consisting of tableware, candles and modular seating, the range is imbued with the British architect’s fluidity and refinement. The London-based studio has worked with a diverse mix of materials for this collection; glass melds with fine bone china and steel with PVD to conjure dynamic silhouettes through rigorous constructive techniques.
Arriving in deep and dark hues, the collection embarks on a geometric journey, starting with architectural vases and candleholders. Produced in fine bone china, the contours of the vases derive from Hadid’s research in tower forms, standing strong against the fine lines sweeping across the dinner sets. Appearing as a 3D concave shape, the monochrome definition in the tableware is vividly intricate.
From there, the collection continues to celebrate Hadid’s powerful harnessing of material and shape – from the fun and playful puzzle Polyethylene modular seating and colourful ‘Rim’ vessels, to the delicacy of the stainless steel serenity bowls that flow like water.
