Zaha Hadid adds new designs to Liquid Glacial range

Zaha Hadid has added a range of stools and a bowl with an ice theme to her furniture designs for the David Gill Gallery in London’s Mayfair.

The transparent acrylic creations resemble the coffee and dining tables created by the architect in 2012.

The curved forms are intended to resemble melting glacial ice while sections of the stools slope into vertical supports to look like pouring liquid.

Patterns in the clear surfaces refract light to create shadows. One of the stools is tinted blue, in order to mimic the appearance of rippled water frozen in time.

“The Liquid Glacial series has pushed the boundaries of materiality and innovation – part of the process of our ongoing design investigation,” said Hadid.
