A SPECIAL EDITION TO CELEBRATE THE ICONIC ARCHITECT AND DESIGNER:
Her career spanned four decades of extraordinary advances in the field of architecture and design, and her pioneering vision ultimately redefined both for the 21st century, capturing imaginations across the globe as the name Zaha Hadid became an icon.
The renowned architect often collaborated with eminent brands to create exquisite, one-off and limited edition pieces, and most of them currently reside in some of the world’s most respected museum collections – consistently showcased in acclaimed retrospective exhibitions worldwide.
The Zaha Hadid Edition celebrates all of these remarkable collaborations, once again reminding us of the priceless heritage left behind by Dame Zaha Hadid. The exquisite pieces convey her virtuosity with their fluid geometries and the immaculate craftsmanship of their manufacture.
Creating the “Zaha Hadid” label for her signature design collection, Ms Hadid reinterpreted the relationships inherent within her architecture – translating her ground-breaking constructions into superb objects of interior design.
“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,” Ms Hadid had explained during her retrospective exhibition at the Guggenheim Museum, New York.
Curated for this year’s Design Shanghai, the Zaha Hadid Edition includes stunning and renowned pieces for Lalique, David Gill, Sawaya and Moroni, ROVE, Wiener Silber and Citco, among others.
With her extensive archive of sketches, paintings and drawings of Hadid’s own hand that have been meticulously compiled over the past 40 years, her team continue the work instigated by her undying spirit – needless to say, it brings us all great comfort knowing that her vision is beautifully preserved by the talent of Zaha Hadid Architects.
Shanghai Design is set to open today, 8th March, and close on 11th March. And as the world continues to celebrate Ms Hadid’s remarkable legacy, the Zaha Hadid Edition and this year’s Collection swiftly convey the unrivalled innovation that so defined her work. Designed with her unwavering belief in the power of invention in a diversity of materials, both traditional and contemporary, each piece is unmistakably Zaha, as usual.
