Hadid retrospective design display during Maison & Objet
An exhibition of the design work of the late Zaha Hadid is currently being staged at Maison & Objet Paris.
The display focuses on the Zaha Hadid Design Collection, objects reinterpreting the relationships inherent throughout her 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 exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum, New York.
Designed with Hadid’s unwavering belief in the power of invention in a diversity of materials both traditional and contemporary, from bone china to modern resins, each piece is unmistakably Zaha.
New pieces for 2017 continue the fluid lines and subtle, organic geometries that define the collection.
New vases and bowls continue the evolution of the Serenity and Braid collections which include candle holders (pictured) —a manipulation of beauty within natural forms—crafted and finished to perfection; while additions to the Beam dinnerware set and range of Sketch glasses convey the detail and composition of Hadid’s paintings.
