Design Shanghai has curated an exhibition to celebrate the collaborations between the late Zaha Hadid and world renowned brands as a showcase of her virtuosity and fluid geometries.
The Zaha Hadid Edition includes pieces from Lalique, David Gill, Sawaya and Moroni, ROVE, Wiener Silber and Citco.
Hadid created the “Zaha Hadid” label for her signature design collection by reinterpreting relationships inherent within her architecture.
“My product designs and architecture have always been connected; some of our earliest projects were designs for products and interiors,” Zaha said during her retrospective exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum in New York.
“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.”
New pieces for 2017 continue the fluid lines and subtle organic geometries that define the Zaha Hadid Collection, also on show at Design Shanghai that will be taking place from 8-11 March, 2017.
