Known as an architect who consistently pushes the boundaries of architecture and urban design, Zaha Hadid work experiments with new spatial concepts intensifying existing urban landscapes and encompassing all fields of design, from the urban scale to interiors and furniture. Beyond architecture, she was an accomplished product designer, lending her sculptural aesthetic to objects ranging from furniture and fixtures to jewelry and shoes. Let’s take a look to unique product designs by Zaha Hadid.
Zaha Hadid Products Design
Aqua Table Platter
Launched for 2014 Zaha Hadid Design collection, this table is inspired by the undulating wave of the London 2012 Olympic Aquatics Centre, the Aqua Platter conveys the fluid rhythms of water in motion.
Commissioned for use in a seating area, Belu presents a single-celled body possessing the dynamic complex geometry of a fluid volume – intended for multi-functional use – as table counter, chair, container, etc.
Charlotte Olympia has collaborated with Zaha Hadid Design on two limited edition pieces in tribute to the late visionary Zaha Hadid, a platform wedge shoe and a clutch bag, both featuring fluid forms in Perspex with rose gold metal accents.
The “Cloud” kennel was created for BowWow Haus London, a public exhibition in aid of Blue Cross for Pets. It is a cocoon-like kennel elevated slightly above the ground to protect dogs from cold floor surfaces, constructed in sustainably sourced plywood with a digital design and fabrication.
Flow pot sculpture
Looking as if they belong in the MoMA Sculpture Garden, these massive statement pieces are actually indoor/outdoor planters with fluid curves. The planters are rotationally molded linear low-density polyethylene that is 100-percent recyclable after use. The pieces are hand-lacquered in white or black.
Offered in a limited edition of only 12 pieces, Zephyr was unveiled at Salone 2013. The seemingly amorphous shapes of both the seats and backrests took inspiration from natural rock formations and erosion patterns. Hadid designed the units to be combined if desired to create larger islands or archipelagos of seating.
Avia and Aria
The sculptural form of this suspension light series is created with separate layers of Slamp’s proprietary materials: 52 layers of Opalflex techno-polymer for Avia and 50 layers of Cristalflex techno-polymer for Aria. Both feature multiple points of light to provide 360 degrees of illumination in dramatic fashion, as well as a downlight.
