Zaha Hadid’s final project was table for Italian furnishings firm


Zaha Hadid’s table for Sawaya & Moroni was her last completed design project before her untimely death.

Hadid  established a close working relationship as well as a friendship with William Sawaya and Paolo Moroni the protagonists of the multi-faceted italian furniture network.

She worked closely with them to develop research that progressed from the craftsman’s workshop to industrial production, as evidenced in the architect’s earlier Manta Ray seating and Z Chair for the company.


The design takes shape in the form of sweeping motions as the polyurethane structure emerges from a single enveloping figure

Available in vivid red, black or white — always in a single color and material — the table stresses a monolithic and lightweight character which were signature features of the late architect’s work.
