At age 63, the Iraqi-born architect has established a reputation as unconventional and long lasting as any of the buildings from her remarkable portfolio, winning every prize out there. Zaha Hadid has long experimented with smaller creations, producing objects that range from furniture to shoes and jewellery.
The collection by Zaha Hadid Design consists of a series of new designs of the architect, as well as some of her’s studio’s existing products for the home. Zaha’s signature fluid lines of her large-scale structures are well represented in this stunning collection.
All the pieces are produced by experienced european craftsman with the ceramics cast in Stoke-on-Trent, England. The ceramic and bone china alongside translucent acrylic and dark resin pieces with neon chroma are made outstanding by their shapes and contrasting material.
Geometric experiments for towers in Brisbane and Beijing have proved particularly fruitful as a source of inspiration, providing the basis for cups, saucers and flasks, as well as a gleaming resin chess set. You can do battle with your very own armies of Zaha Hadid skyscrapers, the rows of twisting totems facing off across the board, like the skyline of Shanghai squaring up to Dubai.
The long black candle stand features an angular braiding detail that is rendered beautifully in polished black bone china, they will add a whole new dimension to your candlelight dinner. There’s also a range of scented candles housed within vessels, based on studies for the architect’s skyscraper designs.
Two scents, one for day and one for night, in white and black containers respectively, were chosen by Hadid and her team.
The talented architect has got us used to her particular aesthetic with various projects and collaborations, from Lalique vases to a Fendi handbag to a Superyacht. But now she’s cutting out the middle-man and doing it herself, surprising us with her own homeware line.
