Zaha Hadid Design at Maison&Objet 2019 in Paris

Paris, France – January 11th, 2019 – With each new project, Zaha Hadid Design (ZHD) references Zaha Hadid’s inventive process and examines its significance within the dialogue of contemporary design. ZHD interprets present and future, continuing to share Hadid’s story.

Director Woody Yao explains: ‘The strength of the collection lies in our ability to interpret the ordinary into something unexpected. When designing objects Zaha was never constrained by any given use or spatial context. We continue to follow and draw strength from this approach so that the collection has room to evolve without compromising the integrity of the design.’
New for 2019, the Swirl bowl in crystal glass captures the sweeping gesture of a liquefied vortex. A complex geometry informed by one continuous movement, the bowl features topographical shifts rippling across the surface. The translucent finish allows the sculpture to coalesce with its surroundings.
Additions to the Cell range include the platter in Nero Marquina or Statuario marble, and the plate and bowl set in porcelain. A monochromatic colour palette of black or white accentuates the texture, while channels carved into the volumes of the platter and plate allow objects to nest seamlessly on its surfaces.
The new Cell centrepiece in stainless steel reflects the spirit in which it was achieved; true to Hadid’s process, the complex perforations remain undistorted and precise with the use of laser technology. The centrepiece provokes an emotive response to transitions, through the material and geometry; solid to void, hexagonal to sphere, static to explosive, resulting in the creation of playful compositions.
The Hew tray is described through a series of subtle movements; from the gently upturned surface edge to the undulating base which peels away to reveal a dual purpose – voids for carrying, and dips for resting. This dynamism is further expressed through the contrasting colours of the powder-coated finish on the surface and base.
