In a career spanning four decades, Zaha Hadid’s pioneering vision redefined architecture and design for the 21st Century and captured imaginations across the globe.
Collaborating with the world’s most iconic brands to create exquisite one-off, as well as limited-edition pieces, Hadid’s works are within some of the world’s most respected museum collections and have been showcased in acclaimed retrospective exhibitions worldwide.
She created the “Zaha Hadid” label for her signature design pieces; each informed and inspired by her renowned architectural repertoire. Zaha Hadid Design developed the collection, reinterpreting the relationships inherent throughout Hadid’s architecture.
“My product designs and architecture have always been connected; some of our earliest projects were designs for products and interiors. These design pieces are very important to me and my team.
They inspire our creativity by providing an opportunity to express our ideas through different scales and through different media; an essential part of our on-going design investigation,” Hadid explained during her retrospective exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum, New York.
The 2018 Collection conveys the unrivalled innovation within her work. Designed with Hadid’s unwavering belief in the power of invention in a diversity of materials both traditional and contemporary.
Outstanding new pieces continue the fluid lines and subtle, organic geometries that define the collection. The Pulse glass vessels (pictured) differ in height and colour, yet are unified by the textural contrast between smooth and ‘pleated’ glass.
Displaying the glass-blower’s expertise and craftsmanship in the creation of ripples across only a portion of the circumference, the vessels give the illusion of simplicity while encompassing the detailed exploration within Zaha Hadid’s pioneering work.
